"Why have opening convocations? Are they 
necessary?" someone asked last week. No, the 
ceremony is not necessary. It is, rather, a highly 
desirable and entirely appropriate experience. This 
occasion celebrates our identification and relation 
as student and teacher. It is a gathering together 
of our community in which all are engaged in 
common purpose. It is, we hope, a time for con- 
templation, a time for assessment of the past and 
dedication to the future. It dramatizes a point of 
departure and it does so in this magnificent House 
of God whose ministry we serve in education and 

Why are you college students here rather than 
at some other, more secular place? Why have our 
faculty chosen to teach here, often at financial 
sacrifices, rather than elsewhere? What is the 
special, perhaps unique, purpose of Sewanee that 
drew us to this Mountain? To what purpose do we 
dedicate ourselves for the second semester, 

Let us remind ourselves first that, in spite of 
continuous clamor for innovation and change 
toward assuring "relevance to today's society," 
there is an unbroken thread of timelessness in our 
aims, goals, and purposes. We read all sorts of 
articles and the results of various statistical surveys 
urging the necessity for increasing career-oriented 
courses in undergraduate colleges and more "prac- 
tical" training in seminaries. A recent, highly 
publicized national survey has questioned the 
ultimate value of the college preparatory high 
school diploma and the college baccalaureate 
degree, because the survey revealed a declining 
differential in lifetime earnings between those 
whose formal education has ended with high 
school graduation and those who had finished four 
years of college. For my part, I find the data and 
the conclusions worthy of some attention but 
demonstrating little measure of what we are really 
about. As a matter of fact, they may simply meas- 
ure an entrance of the skilled worker and semi- 
professional into an economic status of stability to 
which many of us have been dedicated for years. 
Some time ago President Theodore Lockwood 
of Trinity College (Connecticut) was quoted in the 
Chronicle of Higher Education: ". . .The federal 
and state governments are emphasizing that the 
purpose of higher education is to provide trained 
manpower to meet anticipated national needs. Ever 

since Sputnik, the government has been under- 
standably concerned about the yo-yo phenomenon 
in which supply of skills so often is down when the 
demand is up. I am convinced that the liberal arts 
college has an integrity which transcends this utili- 
tarian objective, appropriate as it may be for cer- 
tain kinds of postsecondary education." 

I want to offer another interpretation of 
purpose, of what should happen to students 
exposed to the Church's ministry in education. 
In 1861 William Johnson Cory wrote in Eton 
Reform : 

"You go to school ... at the age of twelve or 
thirteen; and for the next four or five years you are 
not engaged so much in acquiring knowledge as in 
making mental efforts under criticism ... A certain 
amount of knowledge you can indeed with average 
faculties acquire so as to retain; nor need you re- 
gret the hours that you spent on much that is 
forgotten, for the shadow of lost knowledge at 
least protects you from many illusions. But you go 
to a great school, not for knowledge so much as for 
the arts and habits; for the habit of attention, for 
the art of expression ... for the art of entering 
quickly into another person's thoughts, for the 
habit of submitting to censure and refutation, for 
the art of indicating assent or dissent in graduated 
terms, for the habit of regarding minute points of 
accuracy ... for taste, for discrimination, for 
mental courage and mental soberness. Above all, 
you go to a great school for self-knowledge." 

It is in college that the "habits of attention, the 
art of expression, the art of indicating assent or 
dissent in graduated terms, the habit for taste, 
discrimination, mental courage and mental sober- 
ness, and the emergence of self-knowledge" must 
have their beginnings. How much more true in the 
last quarter of the twentieth century than in the 
English society of 1861! 

Let us then, both teacher and student, dedicate 
ourselves toward these purposes in the second 
semester of the year 1975-76 in Sewanee.

Vice-Chancellor and President 

The University of the South 

Address at Opening Convocation 
January 16, 1976 


The new hospital at Sewanee will 
be done by precisely April 19. 
That's what George Chapman, job 
superintendent for the Joe Rodgers 
and Associates contracting firm, 
says, and his air of having it all 
together leaves no doubt in the 
mind of observers at the site that 
all will come about as planned. 

The reaching of such an exact 
target involves mental and physical 
juggling to boggle the lay mind. As 
an instance, Chapman mentioned 
that he received word the doors 
would all arrive April 9, after the 
carpeting would need to be laid 
and other construction completed 
far beyond the time at which doors 
should be hung. The builders work- 
ed at it and figured out how it 
could be done, and then the sup- 
plier said he was sending the doors 
a month earlier. 

Stepping over such obstacles as 
a glass pipe coming up from the 
floor (metal might corrode) and 
around a massive just-arrived air- 
conditioning unit, the visitor sees 
shaping up through the ordered 
chaos a handsome, compact struc- 
ture every detail of which shows 
careful planning for patient safety 
and comfort, staff efficiency and 
administrative economy. 

Since the architects, Gresham 
and Smith, and the builders, the 
Joe M. Rodgers firm, both centered 
in Nashville, have been responsible 
for dozens of hospitals, the know- 
how so clearly exhibited is not 
surprising. The Rodgers company 
operates in twenty states and Saudi 
Arabia. The corporate size makes 
for economy too, Chapman noted. 
"Instead of buying one or two air 
conditioning units we buy a large 
number. This gives us considerable 

The decision to build a new 
hospital when it was found seventy- 
seven -year -old Emerald- Hodgson 
could not meet current state regula- 
tions was a community-wide one— 
the community extending into 
three counties. The decision was 
backed up by an outpouring of gifts 
from every segment of the patient 

The site chosen is directly 
across from the Sewanee Inn, 
making easy the accommodation 
of patients' families. It has ready 
access to transportation and utility 
lines but is still surrounded by 
natural beauty. "Working with the 
University of the South and the 
hospital staff at various levels," says 
a dispatch from the architects' 
office, "the architects came up with 
a very contemporary and functional 
solution that is clad in the tradi- 
tional stone facing, producing a 
striking building at once dramatic 
and in harmony with the visual 
traditions of the University of the 

Tying the hospital in with its 
surroundings is a large courtyard 
where the trees have been pre- 

The operating and delivery 
rooms and laboratories all incorpor- 
ate the latest medical thinking, 
hospital superintendent Col. Joseph 
Powell points out. While there is 
no attempt to duplicate all the 
facilities of large centers, what is 
undertaken here will be done with 
the finest technical support. 

Appearance has had attention 
too. Each room has been given a 
different bright, uninstitutional 
color, usually on a single wall. Se- 
wanee stone has been brought 
indoors and combined with large 
window walls. The overhang, a 
prominent architectural feature, 
will protect the entering public 
from the weather. Patient entry is 
eased by every means and a closed 
TV camera will alert the nurses' 
station to any emergency con- 

Practically all the old equip- 
ment and furnishings of Emerald- 
Hodgson Hospital will be left 
behind and disposed of, giving way 
to the optimal new surroundings. 
The stout old stone building will be 
remodeled into a much-needed 
college dormitory and called Hodg- 
son Hall, its original name. 

What will be transported from 
the old hospital to the new are the 
memorial plaques honoring persons 
designated by benefactors, and an 
unbroken tradition of tender loving 
care, individual concern, and high 
professional expertise. 

Dr. Leonard to Be 
Health Officer 

Dr. Russell J. Leonard of Anniston, 
Alabama, has been appointed 
health officer and sanitarian for the 
University beginning June 30, on 
the retirement of Dr. Roger Way. 
He will also engage in private prac- 
tice in Monteagle and will be on 
the staff of the new hospital at 

Dr. Leonard was born July 8, 
1919 in Oklahoma City. He is a 
graduate of Phillips Exeter Acad- 
emy, the University of Texas and 
the Northwestern Medical School 
in Chicago. 

He interned at Gorgas Hospital 
in the Canal Zone, did refresher 
work at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania and did a surgical residency 
at Memorial Hospital in Houston, 
Texas. He also studied at Baylor 
University Medical School, served a 
general surgery residency at South- 
ern Pacific Hospital in Houston, a 
thoracic preceptorship under Drs. 
Barkley and Dailey in Houston 
and the last year of thoracic surgery 
residency at East Texas Tubercu- 
losis Sanatorium in Tyler, Texas. 
He was acting superintendent of 
the sanatorium for nine months 
and while there started the first 
practical nurses' training program 
in the Texas state eleemosynary 

Dr. Leonard is board-certified 
in both general and thoracic 

He was in the private practice 
of thoracic surgery in Houston 
for six years and then, wishing to 
live in a smaller community, went 

into general surgical practice in 
Anniston. His acceptance of the 
Sewanee appointment is motivated 
by a long-felt desire to be connect- 
ed with a university and to prac- 
tice where he is even more needed, 
as he is sure to be in both Sewanee 
and Monteagle. 

He was a Navy physician in 
1945-46 and again in 1952, when 
he was in Japan with the Third 
Marine Division. 

Dr. Leonard has served as chief 
of the surgery section of the 
Anniston Memorial Hospital, as 
president of the Calhoun County 
Medical Society, and on the original 
board of directors of the Anniston 
Drug Abuse Council. He has made 
many talks on drug abuse and 
smoking and has worked continu- 
ously with young people in crisis 
intervention and counseling. 

He has been on the vestry of 
Grace Episcopal Church in Annis- 
ton, was leader of the Episcopal 
Young Churchmen for two years 
and for three years was chairman 
of the board of the Episcopal Day 

He is married to the former 
Maud Michaux Powell and they 
have five children, including three 
who have attended the University. 
The eldest of them, Russell, Jr., 
C'73, operates the Texaco station 
in Sewanee. Jenny Michaux, C'76, 
is the wife of Ben Vaughan, A'69 
and C'73. Daniel Woodson 
("Woody") is a freshman in the 

Dr .Way Ret ires 

Dr. Roger A. Way, C'30, outgoing 
health officer and sanitarian for the 
University, came to Sewanee in 
1969 to ease off from a very busy 
urology practice in Spartanburg, 
South Carolina. The ten hours a 
week of office hours which the ad- 
ministration projected for him were 
soon expanded, by his own 
decision, to eighteen, and a year 
after his arrival he was made chief 
of staff of Emerald-Hodgson Hos- 
pital, a position he held for four 
years. He has also maintained 
private practice in which he has 
shown a readiness to accommodate 
patients at odd hours which has in 
general gone out of fashion. He 
declares, though, that his life here 
has been far more leisurely than 
it was in Spartanburg. 

He received his M.D. degree 
from the Medical College of South 
Carolina and served his internship 
and residency at Hillman Hospital 
in Birmingham, Alabama, and his 
urology residency at Pennsylvania 
Hospital, Philadelphia. During 
World War II he was stationed at 
Stark General Hospital in Charles- 
ton, South Carolina. 

When he came here he was a 
trustee from South Carolina. He 
and his wife quickly moved to the 
center backbone of Sewanee com- 
munity life. He continues to serve 
as secretary of the Sewanee Civic 
Association, on the Human Ecology 
Committee and as president of the 
Memorial Society. The last organi- 
zation was one he founded to 
further sensible burial costs and 
carry out people's own wishes in 
the matter. 

Roger A. Way, Jr., C'69, is a 
lawyer working for the Justice De- 
partment in Washington. Dr. and 
Mrs. Way also have a daughter, Mrs. 
Richard Cecil, Jr., of Columbia, 
South Carolina. 

To help ward off post-retire- 
ment idleness Dr. Way purchased a 
tract of land off the Sherwood 
Road and is clearing it himself. He 
plans to make a garden there and 
may build. 

NEEDS $389,388 BY JUNE 30 

The Million Dollar Program for 
annual unrestricted funds required 
to balance the current University- 
wide budget stands at $635,612 as 
of February 13. Total of unrestrict- 
ed and restricted gifts and bequests 
is $1,404,922. 

Budget-applicable gifts needed 
by June 30, the end of the fiscal 
year, total $1,025,000. Hence, in 
addition to the $635,612 in hand, 
$389,388 has yet to be given if the 
University is to stay in the black. 
"Taking into account that the 
spring months are not customarily 
associated with giving, it is clear 
that all of us who care about Se- 
wanee have a hard task ahead, of 
giving and asking for gifts," William 
U. Whipple, vice-president for de- 
velopment, says. 

73.5% of Faculty and Staff Give 

There are encouraging signs. 
Three members of the Chancellor's 
Society (donors of $10,000 and up) 
have repeated their gifts and two 
have newly joined. Faculty and 
staff contributions to the Univer- 
sity in a self-directed drive brought 
in $9,904 in cash and pledges, with 
331, or 73.5 per cent of 450 em- 
ployees, from the Vice-Chancellor 
to the maintenance workers, giving. 

When those who know her best 
indicate this solid support of 
Sewanee, in spite of their salary and 
wage increases trailing well behind 
the rate of inflation, traditional 
benefactors may be encouraged to 
repeat and add to their gifts and 
new sources will, it is hoped, be 
found. If all the alumni who have 
not contributed would come in 
with even small gifts before June 30 
the University would have it made! 
Hard-headed corporation and foun- 
dation support tends very notice- 
ably to follow where the alumni 
lead. "Why don't more of your 
alumni give?" is a question to 
which the devoted corps of askers 
have no satisfactory answer. 

Every effort is being made to 
bring about the hoped-for result. 
Metropolitan areas and classes are 
being highly organized for one-to- 
one requests. Dean Puckette is 
reminding many alumni by letter 
that sentiment is not enough unless 
translated into dollars, however 

A development office leaflet, 
widely distributed, asks the Million 
Dollar question: "The Other Half— 
Who Pays It?" 

$2,800 Scholarship for All 

"Tuition pays for about half 
the cost of the education offered 
at the University of the South," 
the leaflet reiterates. "The simple 

fact is that even a student who is 
paying full fees and tuition at 
Sewanee has, in effect, a $2,800 
annual scholarship. 

"Two questions come to mind: 
Why? and Who pays the difference? 

"Start with the historical prem- 
ise that society benefits from edu- 
cating its bright minds. Bright 
minds are found at all economic 
levels. Only the very rich would be 
educated if students were charged 
the full cost of education. 

". . .At Sewanee tuition has 
risen annually. A faster rate of 
increase could price it out of the 
market since 45 per cent of Sewa- 
nee students already receive some 
direct financial aid. 

"For over a century Sewanee 
has quietly been educating bright 
minds in the context of a Christian 
community. The difference be- 
tween tuition and total cost has

coalition of corporations, founda- 
tions, parents, friends, former stu- 
dents, and members of the Episco- 
pal Church."

Everyone who has occasion to call the University will be pleased to 
hear that it is now on a central switchboard. The number is 
(615) 598-5931. 

The board is located in the treasurer's office and regular 
personnel there take turns tending it. Outside of business hours calls 
come in to the Bishop's Common desk, and later to the police 
station, for twenty-four-hour service. Calls may be transferred 
anywhere within the system, and conference calls involving several 
offices in different buildings are possible. 

College, School of Theology, Academy and dormitories are all 
on the system. 

Central WATS lines to heavily used areas have been installed. 
Overall savings are expected. Public relations should improve as 
callers no longer are asked to dial other numbers or, in particularly 
frustrating instances, are connected with people who cannot help 
them at all. 


JUNE 30 IS '75-76 


Last summer the University, with 
the regents' consent, changed its 
fiscal year from September 1— 
August 31 to July 1— June 30. This 
was done to allow necessary ac- 
counting to be done during the 
summer, before the opening of 
school added to the administrative 
and machine workload. 

Since there was not time to 
change an already-announced chal- 
lenge grant deadline for gifts, the 
Million Dollar Program was allowed 

to continue until August 31. Now 
the program must retool itself to 
the fiscal year and restore the bal- 
ance which was lost when ten 
months of giving did not meet the 
funds needed for the same ten 
months of expenditure. 

Please take note of the new 
fiscal year for both getting and 
spending, and see that the Univer- 
sity of the South receives your gift 
of any size before June 30. 

a Will 

Bequests totaling $361,697 have 
come to the University during the 
current fiscal year, $29,706 of it 
unrestricted and hence usable 
where most needed. 

By far the largest of the be- 
quests, $260,000, came from 
Nelson P. Sanford of West Palm 
Beach, Florida on the death of his 
wife, Celeste. Mr. Sanford died 
fifteen years ago. An Episcopalian 
and an alumnus of Hobart College, 
he had been an attorney in Roches- 
ter, New York. The bequest is 
earmarked for the School of 

A Parent Remembers 
Alpheus J. Goddard, the father of 
the Rev. Paul D. Goddard, C*60, 
vicar of Grace Church in Galena, 
Illinois, left $12,000 to the Univer- 
sity as an unrestricted bequest. 
Thus, sixteen years after his son 
had shared the Sewanee experience, 
another young person will, thanks 
to him, have the same opportunity. 
Twelve thousand dollars is just 
about the University's share of the 
cost for four years of a student who 
pays full tuition. 

The Landrum Ladies 

A continuing source of gratification 
and agreeable speculation are the 
bequests from people about whom 
no one knows anything. Such a one 
is the $1,000 from Miss Lonny 
Landrum of Fort Walton Beach, 
Florida. Small gifts had come from 
her almost every year of recent 
years and, until her death three 
years ago, from Miss Annie 
Landrum at the same address. Were 
they sisters? How did they hear of 
Sewanee? Did an alumnus remi- 
nisce? Did a clergyman tell them? 
Whatever the source of inspira- 
tion, Miss Lonny's thoughtful 
inclusion of the University of the 
South in her will for unrestricted 
funds will help the object of her 
benefaction remain strong through 
present stresses and will assure her a 
permanent place on its rolls of 
grateful memory. 


Jefferson McMahan, C'76 

Self-portrait done two years ago and 
presented to Dr. Harrison 



Jefferson A. McMahan, C'76, of 
Camden, South Carolina is one of 
the nation's thirty-two college 
seniors this year to win a Rhodes 
Scholarship to Oxford University. 
Two other Sewanee students won 
their states' nomination— Allen H. 
Reddick of Cullman, Alabama and 
Mark Whitney of Shelbyville, Ten- 
nessee. All three are English majors 
and all three were initiated into 
Phi Beta Kappa in their junior year. 
The scholarship pays for all fees 
at Oxford plus a yearly stipend of 
approximately $3,000 for at least 
two years and possibly a third. The 
Rhodes Scholarship was set up in 
the will of Cecil Rhodes, who 
made his fortune in diamond 
mining. The will directed that the 
awards be given on the basis of a 
candidate's character and intellect 
and that a Rhodes Scholar "should 
not be a one-sided man, or a selfish 
man." After applicants are screened 
on the basis of a written form, the 
surviving candidates are interviewed 
first by a state committee and then 
by a regional committee. Four can- 
didates are chosen from each of 
the eight regions to be Rhodes 

18? 197 20? 

There is no doubt that the Uni- 
versity of the South is one of a 
very few colleges which in propor- 
tion to enrollment have been most 
productive of Rhodes Scholars. 
Exactly how many to count is 
slightly clouded. In the giddy year 
when three turned up from Se- 
wanee (James Robert Sheller and 
Thomas Ward, Jr. from the College, 
'67, and John Alexander, A'63, a 
graduate of Princeton) we got a 
roster from the Rhodes Scholarship 
Trust and found that Lawrence 
Faucett, '15, who had always been 
on the Sewanee list, had actually 
done his undergraduate work at the 
University of Chattanooga, al- 
though he was in attendance at the 
School of Theology at the time of 
the award. So, counting the College 
alone (which seems the only fair 
count for this particular honor), 
Jeff McMahan is No. 18. But there 
have been twenty Rhodes Scholars 
from Sewanee. 

Jeff McMahan does not fit the 
image of the scholar-athlete that 
one customarily associates with the 
Rhodes Scholarship. We have had a 
number of those— Tom Ward and

2. Princeton 8. The University of the South

4. Yale 10. Davidson 

5. Swarthmore 

Douglas Paschall leap to mind— but 
we have had unathletic types, too, 
like Joel Price, C'63. Jeff plays 
tennis and "walks around a lot," 
but he insists that "walks" is the 
word, not hikes or climbs or other- 
wise strenuously exerts himself. 

Quiet and composed, when 
questioned he yet demonstrates a 
clear seriousness in devotion to 
thought and an independence of 
mind that could not but have im- 
pressed the Rhodes committees. He 
has an expressive and lively face in 
which clear blue eyes seem to have 
been invented. When discussing 
matters vital to him he speaks with 
structured clarity. He has become 
deeply interested in philosophy 
during the past year and plans to 
follow a course at Oxford leading 
to the B. Phil, degree. The interest 
was aroused outside of formal 
classwork from reading Lucretius 
with Dr. Charles Harrison and 
Bertrand Russell on his own. 

' His main interest aside from his 
studies is art. He is the young man 
whom the Associated Alumni 
commissioned to draw portraits of 
the organization's presidents for 
display in the Bishop's Common. 
One member of the South Carolina 
Rhodes committee snapped up 
Jeff's drawing of Bertrand Russell, 
among a group submitted in sup- 
port of his candidacy, and insisted 
on paying for it. Another commit- 
tee member wanted to buy a 
landscape. Jeff did not have a 
copy with him and later sent one 
as a gift. 

Not a Selfish Man 

"The main question they asked 
me outside of purely academic 
matters was about my social con- 
cern," he says. "I embarrassedly 
revealed some facts about my 

high school past— my political 
activism then. I expressed some of 
my major concerns about the world 
today, primarily my concern about 
the current nuclear situation. I 
worry about it from an ecological 
standpoint, but mostly about the 
imminence of a holocaust ending 
the existence of mankind." 

He is a member of World 
Federalists, U. S. A., and the Plan- 
ning Commission for New Direc- 
tions, an organization which con- 
cerns itself with global issues. He 
has not been much of a joiner at 
Sewanee, although he has been a 
member of the Sewanee Peace 
Fellowship and the Experimental 
Film Club. He has also assembled 
groups of students for intellectual 
discussion, we hear from other 

He wrote a well-knit essay on 
Thomas Paine, "among the greatest 
of America's forgotten heroes," 
for the column "Rights," syndi- 
cated to college newspapers by his 
friend Charles Morgan, C'76. Jeff's 
piece was printed in the Sewanee 
Purple February 6. 

Sewanee as a womb for Rhodes 
Scholars? "To a considerable extent 
how one is able to study and think 
depends on one's environment. This 
may not be true for everyone but 
it is for me, and I think Sewanee 
is the perfect environment 

Professors Judged 

His favorite professor is Dr. 
Charles Harrison. He had all his 
freshman English with him, audited 
his advanced Shakespeare course 
during the second semester of his 
freshman year, and took all the 
courses Dr. Harrison has offered

since he retired from a full 
schedule— Mozart, which he taught 
as a Brown Tutor, and philosophy 
in literature, which he is teaching 
this year for the philosophy depart- 
ment. Outside of any class frame- 
work they read together Lucretius, 
as mentioned earlier, Chaucer and 
the Old Testament. Jeff also credits 
Dr. Harrison with redirecting his 
generalized enjoyment of music to 
an interest in good music. Strictly 
a consumer, Jeff owns a large 
record collection and attends all 
possible concerts. 

"The faculty here is mixed, of 
course— some very good and others 
not so good. Some of the new 
people are very fine, and I admire 
Professor Caldwell and enjoyed 
studying philosophy with him." 

Singled out for praise among 
the newer teachers were Dr. Dale 
Richardson of the English depart- 
ment and Dr. Robert Cassidy of the 
department of religion. 

Jeff's privately cherished ambi- 
tion is to return some day to 
Sewanee and teach philosophy. He 
has applied to Corpus Christi, Mer- 
ton and Wadham Colleges at 
Oxford, but had not yet heard from 
any of them. When he was in Eng- 
land last summer in the British 
Studies at Oxford program he was 
attracted to the physical environ- 
ment of Cambridge more than to 
that of Oxford and was accepted 
there, but there are no scholarships 
around for Cambridge. And any- 
way, "the philosophy faculty at 
Oxford is probably better than at 
Cambridge. It has more great 
philosophers, and has dominated 
philosophy in the English-speaking 
world for the latter half of this 

Jeff is the only one of the three 
state winners who is not a Wilkins

Wins Major 

Allen Tate was named winner of 
the 1975 award for literature by 
the Ingram Merrill Foundation of 
New York City. He was the unanF- 
mous choice of the judges to re- 
ceive the $10,000 prize, according 
to a letter he received in December 
at his Sewanee home. 

The letter said, "You have given 
us your splendid poems, your 
extraordinary novel, your brilliant 
literary criticism and your contin- 
uing presence as one of the handful 
of distinguished men of letters." 

The writer, whose seventy-fifth 
birthday was celebrated in Novem- 
ber 1974 by a pilgrimage of out- 
standing English and American men 
of letters to Sewanee and to a 
simultaneous gathering in London, 
is a former editor of the Sewanee 
Review, and, just before his retire- 
ment, Brown Senior Tutor in the 
College. He is the author of the 
novel The Fathers, several volumes 
of poetry and a recently published 
collection of essays, Memoirs and 
Opinions. One of his widely an- 
thologized poems is "Ode to the 
Confederate Dead." 

Allen Tate commented on the 
award, "This pleases me more than 
anything that has happened to me 
for many years. I have had other 
prizes, but never one quite so

The book To Be a Priest: Perspec- 
tives on Vocation and Ordination, 
edited by Robert E. Terwilliger and 
Urban T. Holmes III and published 
by the Seabury Press, was initiated 
by Presiding Bishop John M. Allin, 
C'43, T'45, as part of a problem- 
solving apparatus involving the pro- 
posed ordination of women. The 
book carries a foreword by Bishop 
Allin and includes essays in four 
sections by twenty diverse writers. 

Of particular Sewanee interest 
among the writers are C. Fitz- 
Simons Allison, C'49; Massey H. 
Shepherd, Jr., longtime director of 
the Graduate School of Theology; 
John M. Gessell, professor of 
Christian ethics in the School of 
Theology; Arthur A. Vogel, C'46 
and Urban T. Holmes, dean of the 
School of Theology. Dean Holmes' 
co-editor, Robert E. Terwilliger, 
was recently elected Bishop of 

The four divisions of this 
urgent book are "What Is a Priest?" 
"The Priesthood in the Bible and 
History," "Priestly Functions," and 
"The Priestly Vocation Today." 

Bishop Allin's Foreword 

By the end of the 1973 General Conven- 
tion of the Episcopal Church in Louis- 
ville, I was convinced that the grave and 
potentially divisive issue of the ordination 
of women was one of those pastoral, 


lical proble 

which could not be resolved simply by 
voting. Some desired dramatic action 
immediately. Others seemed to be stall- 
ing for time, hoping the question would 
eventually go away. 

I came to my new responsibility as 
Presiding Bishop convinced that the 
Church has the capacity as a community 
to resolve correctly and justly such prob- 
lems when provided the opportunity and 
the means. Accordingly, I proposed to 
the House of Bishops that the Presiding 
Bishop-elect initiate a new process which 

would provide the membership of the 
Church, and any others interested, oppor- 
tunity and means to share in this prob- 
lem-solving. The" bishops gave unanimous 

The purpose of the proposed process 
was to develop throughout the Church a 
clearer and more definitive understanding 
of the doctrine of Christian priesthood 
and a valid Christian concept of human 
sexuality. To secure a resolution of the 
ordination question in accord with the 
faith of the Church, a method was 
required to stimulate and enrich thought- 
ful discussions of priesthood and sexual- 
ity among church people. 

The plan developed was to publish a 
book of brief essays on each subject. Rep- 
resentative and qualified authors were to 
be sought by co-editors who held differ- 
ing views on the subjects. Each book was 
to include an extensive bibliography. I 
hoped each book would be a mosaic of 
written statements, each contributing to 
the form, depth, and color of the subject. 

A committee was asked to check out 
the plan, suggest specific topics and titles 
and possible authors, and submit biblio- 
graphies. I asked John Goodbody and the 
Church Center Communication Staff to 
coordinate the process. The publishing 
services of the Seabury Press were avail- 

This book is the first 
offered with the prayer that i 
from it some revealing light ' 
cused on priesthood. If from this book 
some questions receive answers, some an- 
swers receive clarifications, and some new 
questions are provoked, the purpose will 
be well served. 

This book is not the official report of 
a "blue ribbon" committee. It is, rather, a 
sharing of understandings, a contribution 
to a process of community building, an 
attempt to clarify the meaning of priest- 
hood and hopefully to reflect a clearer 
vision of Jesus, the Great High Priest. 

I hope you will want to share this 
mosaic with others.

The Alumni College 

Periscope 76 is described as a stim- 
ulating vacation, a chance to "get 
away with the kids and get away 
from the kids," all in the same 
package. It is called Periscope be- 
cause it is designed to be a tube 
up from the sea of everyday de- 
tails for a view of the wide horizon. 
Gorley Putt, don of St. John's 
College, Cambridge, who will be the 
Brown Senior Tutor during the 
summer, will also be the guest 
headliner for the alumni summer 
college July 11-17. Assistant pro- 
fessor of English Edwin Stirling, 
C'62, coordinator of Periscope 76, 
says that Putt has written one of 
the two or three best books on 
Henry James. He has been asked 
to speak on "An Englishman's 
View of American Literature." 
From the College faculty the 
alumni college staff will include 
Dr. Waring McCrady, A'55, C'59, 
of the French department, with a 
slide presentation overview of con- 
temporary European civilization; 
Dr. Gerald Smith on religion in the 
Southern United States (he is pre- 
paring a College course on the 
subject), Dr. Claude Sutcliffe (polit- 
ical science) on the current situa- 
tion in the Middle East; and Dr. 
Anita S. Goodstein, associate pro- 
fessor of history, on "History from 
the Ground Up," with emphasis on 
what we now know about partici- 
pation in the Revolution by all 
kinds of groups not previously 
heard from. 

As side courses, Dr. Edward 
Carlos of the fine arts department 
will give afternoon instruction in 
photography and Dr. Francis X. 
Hart, associate professor of physics 
and director of the University ob- 
servatory, will offer evening star- 
gazing with binoculars and tele- 

Both the Sewanee Summer 
Music Center and the Sewanee- 
Vanderbilt Theological Coalition's 
Doctor of Ministry program will 
be in session at this time, affording 
the opportunity to attend at least 
one concert (Friday night) and 
lectures as they may be offered. 
Athletic facilities will be avail- 
able: golf, tennis, and swimming at 
Lake Cheston including swimming 
classes in the morning for those 
who wish to enroll children in 
them. Gerald Smith, former adviser 
to the Sewanee Ski and Outing 
Club, has agreed to lead "long 
walks" during two afternoons. Day 
care for children will be provided. 
Dr. Stirling explains Periscope 
76 as "an effort on the part of the 
University to establish a program in 
continuing education. By that I 
mean an effort to provide a relation 
between the University and its 
alumni based on the main purpose 
of the University— education. The 
program might be described as an 
educational vacation— a chance for 
alumni to come back to recharge 
their intellectual batteries, see what 
has happened in the various disci- 

plines since they left college. It is a 
combination of the traditional sum- 
mer vacation with academic activi- 
ties to stimulate the mind. CBS-TV 
correspondent George Herman 
spoke enthusiastically of one such 
program that he attended, calling it 
a 'mind-stretching experience.' 

"It is planned, as an intellectual 
exercise without pressure," Profes- 
sor Stirling elaborated. "Partici- 
pants will be brought together with 
other interesting people— staff and 
other participants— in what we all 
know to be a very beautiful setting 
at a very beautiful time of year." 

Participants will be quartered 
together, for optimal interaction, in 
Malon Courts dormitory, with all 
linens and basic housekeeping serv- 
ices furnished. Meals will be at 
Gailor. Class meetings, formal and 
informal gatherings will be in the 
new Bishop's Common. Tuition, 
room and board will be $175 for 
each participant; room and board 
for each non-participating depend- 
ent will be $60.25; and tuition 
alone will be $115. The family fee 
for golf and tennis will be $20 and 
for tennis only, $10. The fee for an 
individual will be $10 for golf and 
tennis and $5 for tennis only. 

A typical day will begin after 
breakfast with a lecture by a staff 
member followed by discussion in 
groups with a staff leader. Lunch 
will be with the staff every day. 
Afternoons will be generally free 
with a choice of options. Partici- 
pants, although not pressured to do 
so, may wish to spend their after- 
noons working in the library. "The 
duPont staff has been alerted and 
are being extremely cooperative," 
Dr. Stirling says. 

The director has investigated 
similar programs at Dartmouth, 
Brown, Wellesley, Indiana Univer- 
sity and Duke. "I found them all 
to be in varying degrees very suc- 
cessful and helpful for us but have 
tried to set up a program that is 
unique to Sewanee but not isolated 
from the outside world. 

"The program we have put 
together is shaped in part by our 
asking the question: Is the liberal 
arts curriculum valid in contempor- 
ary America? Those who wish to 
attend might come prepared to be 
challenged by that overriding ques- 
tion. We will have people both from 
old Sewanee and new Sewanee per- 
forming in their specific disciplines. 
If there is some kind of thread 
going through all this it is in terms 
of the liberal arts education. 
"The aim is to offer parti- 
cipants a chance to consider 
questions both of a personal and of 
a mutual nature. We won't guaran- 
tee answers but we certainly are 
going to offer an opportunity for 
the questions to be asked."

BEYOND THE GOAL- Kyle Rote Book 

by Douglas Paschall 

Now that Kyle Rote, Jr. (C'72) is 
once again into the finals of the 
nationally televised Superstars com- 
petition, it is especially timely for 
the Sewanee News to notice that 
the young striker for the Dallas 
Tornado pro soccer team has now 
also become an author. The book 
is published by Word Books, one of 
whose editors, Ron Patterson, 
assisted him, and is entitled 
Beyond the Goal. 

Kyle frames his autobiographical 
narrative within an account, in the 
opening chapter, of his surprise 
championship in his first Superstars 
competition in 1974, and near the 
end, of his strong but disappointing 
third-place finish (behind O. J. 
Simpson and Bob Seagren) in 
1975— leading to an attitude of 
solid confidence and pride, win or 
lose, as he was beginning to train 
(yes, even superstars practice!) for 
yet another try. 

This frame serves, of course, to 
introduce Kyle in the way that 
most readers will know him. But it 
also traces an arc typical of much 
of Kyle's story, as he tells it, and 
thus points to something persistent 
in his attitude towards life in gen- 
eral. The main episodes, at least, 
tend to take this form: first, an 
immediate and notable triumph; 
then, some unforeseen apparent 
setback; and finally a confirmation 
and synthesis of strengths, enabling 
him to attain a more flexible and 
more durable notion of a truly 
authentic success. 

I mention the account of Super- 
stars, but there are other accounts 
of an analogous shape: that, for 
example, of his early boyhood, 
followed by his parents' divorce, 
and a resultant maturing of his own 
ideas about marriage and family; of 
his amateur sports career, from 
high school star to injury and dis- 
illusionment in football at Okla- 
homa State, to a different sort of 
success playing soccer at Sewanee; 
and that of his career as a profes- 
sional—first Rookie-of-the-Year and 
scoring champ, then in a troubled 
second year bench-sitting and suf- 
fering a fickle press, but now point- 
ing with high hopes to the 1978 
World Cup. 

Sport, for Kyle, as he claims was 
also true of Lombardi, is a sphere 
in which an all-out mania for vic- 
tory is of less importance than an 
inner demand for greater personal 
challenge. This revelatory pattern, 
then, bespeaks a capacity for 
growth, for meeting "personal 
challenges" openly and bravely, in- 
cluding the challenges in his. 

spiritual life which have led him to 
seek, whether it be as clergyman or 
layman, "to be an effective witness 
and minister for Jesus Christ to- 

Naturally, the book does not 
omit Sewanee's part in the ripening 
of this attitude, from first acquaint- 
ance of the Mountain through his 
school principal Dr. Sigler and his 
friend and eventual roommate 
Henry Davis, to his marriage to 
Lynne Lykins, one of Sewanee's 
pioneering coeds, at Commence- 
ment, 1972. The part Kyle himself 
played in helping to boost a fledge- 
ling soccer program is, if anything, 
understated, though the virtues of 
Sewanee's approach to sport, by 
which he was affected, are not. He 
names with approval the formative 
influences of his coach Mac Petty, 
his psychology professor Charles 
Peyser, and two Sewanee clergy- 
men, Dr. Stiles Lines (an uncle of 
Henry Davis) and the Rev. Daryl 

The book is written in an unpre- 
tentious, briskly colloquial style, 
with some good anecdotes and 
celebrity stories, a number of well- 
chosen photographs, and a brief 
glossary of soccer terms and rules. 
I applaud Kyle's lead in trying to 
negotiate, from club owner Lamar 
Hunt, players' salaries above the 
poverty level, and the camp work 
(which he and Lynne both seem to 
love) seems to me to have great 
promise. I confess to wishing here 
and there for a sharper image of 
Kyle himself; but the book's 
express intention is "to convey an 
attitude, not a series of current 
facts," and within that intention, 
it seems an effective story. (I note 
one small error: though football 
did cost more than soccer when 
Kyle came to Sewanee, its budget 
was approximately $20,000, not 

Now that Kyle is known for 
himself (and not mistaken, as he 
once was, for his famous father: 
"He's certainly held his age well, 
hasn't he!"), and is coming to 
know himself, he seems poised for 
a life of distinctive, and distinguish- 
ed, service: to youngsters and to 
sport, to his family and his God. 
And by that very means, to

Though Sewanee's football season 
ended three months ago, the 
College Athletic Conference champ- 
ion Tigers are still receiving honors 
as a result of their outstanding 
1975 season. Two Tigers were 
selected for the Churchmen's All- 
America team, and eight Sewanee 
starters were named to the all-state 
college (NCAA Division II and III) 
team by the Chattanooga Times. 

Steve Higgins and Miles Keefe 
were honored by being chosen for 
the Churchmen's All-America team. 
These selections are made not only 
on the basis of performance on the 
football field, but largely upon 
service to mankind while not en- 
gaged in playing football. Higgins 
was chosen to the second team, and 
Keefe was given honorable men- 

Named to the first team in the 
all-state selections were Kevin Mar- 
chetti and Steve Higgins, offensive 
linemen; Ron Swymer, quarter- 
back; and Jackie Peacock, defensive 

Listed for honorable mention 
were David Funk, offensive back; 
Miles Keefe, offensive end; David 
Walters, defensive back; and Dudley 
West, linebacker. 


This year's basketball team has 
been characterized by its well- 
disciplined defense, its smart ball- 
handling and the individual players' 
unselfish willingness to play for the 
team. These attributes, along with a 
winning record, have combined to 
make the College basketball team 
the talk of the Mountain during the 
snows of winter. 

It is a rare occasion when the 
bleachers in Juhan Gym are not 
nearly filled for a College basketball 
game. In spite of several losses, 
partly attributable to injuries to 
several key players, student support 
of the team has not waned. 

Eddie Krenson, a starter since 
his freshman year, and Harry 
Hoffman, a three-year starter, have 
each compiled career scoring totals 
of more than 1,000 points. This is a 
formidable achievement, since a 
team's score in a Division III bas- 
ketball game rarely exceeds eighty 

Although almost all of the 
players who made up the team that 
went to the NCAA regional tourna- 
ment last year have returned, 
numerous injuries have reduced the 
Tigers' bench strength and have 
been responsible for some of their 
losses. This effect on the team was 
vividly outlined in the heartbreak- 
ing loss to Rose-Hulman in double 
overtime after three of the Tiger 
starters had fouled out. 

As the season nears its end in 
early spring, some of those injured 
are expected to return to the line- 
up. This, along with the fine brand 
of basketball that the whole team 
has exhibited throughout the year, 
gives hope for another CAC champ- 
ionship to the Sewanee sports fan, 
and helps keep alive the enthusiasm 
which is shown each time the 
Tigers take the court for a home 


The College gymnastics team and 
coach Martha Swasey will spend 
two weeks in June touring Vene- 
zuela as part of a cultural exchange 
program between that country and 
Tennessee. The team will give work- 
shops and demonstrations through- 
out the country, primarily in 
secondary schools. 

The Partners of the Americas 
program was initiated about ten 
years ago, and is an effort to 
bring about cultural exchange be- 
tween adults of the United States 
and various countries of South 
America. The program is partially 
funded by the State Department, 
but most of the support comes 
from private citizens in the par- 
ticipating areas. 

Martha Swasey, director of 
women's athletics, was asked by the 
Tennessee Partners if she would 
assemble a group to go to Vene- 
zuela to give clinics in gymnastics. 
She thought that one group from 
Sewanee, which won the B Division 
state championship last year, would 
not be able to cover the country 
adequately in two weeks. So she 
invited the A Division state champ- 
ion Memphis State team and an 
independent group from Chatta- 
nooga to accompany the Sewanee

Girls' Basketball 

Sewanee's young basketball pro- 
gram for girls finished its first 
year as a varsity sport with a sur- 
prisingly good record, considering 
its lack of experience and the 
caliber of teams played. Although 
there has been an extramural team 
for the last three years, this is the 
first year there have been enough 
girls interested in playing to 
support a varsity team. 


17-8 season gives basketball CAC 
championship tie, NCAA Division 
III South Regional berth 

Tennessee has traditionally 
been an area with strong emphasis 
on girls' athletics, particularly bas- 
ketball and volleyball. Sewanee 
has two girls who have played 
varsity basketball extensively in 
high school, but several of the other 
team members have had little or no 
experience. However, all of the 
starting team from this year will be 
back next year, with the promise 
of increasingly better play as the 
girls get more game experience. 

Synchronized Swimming 

"Synchronized swimming is a com- 
bination of strokes and stunts set 
to music and performed in unison 
by two or more swimmers," Vir- 
ginia Blackstock, coach of 
Sewanee's synchronized swimming 
team, says. "The movements in the 
water are rhythmic and interpre- 
tive of the music. They combine 
skill with a good deal of strength 
and endurance," she said. 

Sewanee's synchronized swim- 
ming is in its third year of exist- 
ence, and is one of the few teams 
of its kind in the South. The team 
can compete on an AAU level, but 
the lack of teams in the vicinity of 
Sewanee has restricted the possibil- 
ity of competition for the Sewanee 

"We use an underwater loud- 
speaker so the girls can stay with 
the music and each other," Mrs. 
Blackstock said. "Judging in com- 
petition is very similar to the 
judging of floor exercises in 
gymnastics," she said. "Certain 
types of stunts are required, with 
various point ratings being assigned 
to the stunts on the basis of

"Longdistance walking is an old Southern 
tradition," a November bulletin reminded the 
Sewanee Ski and Outing Club. "One thinks 
immediately of the prodigious marches made 
by Stonewall Jackson's 'foot cavalry.' Here at 
Sewanee in earlier years long walks were not 
unusual. Students and professors walked to 
Chattanooga, to Nashville, and even to 
Atlanta. The leader of many of these expedi- 
tions was a professor of English, Tudor S. 

"Because of nagging doubts as to whether 
contemporary students (and English profes- 
sors) are put together as well as they used 
to be in the old days, the SS&OC plans to 
revive this old Sewanee tradition. 

"On Saturday, December 6, 1975, the 
SS&OC will sponsor the Tudor S. Long 
iviemorial Chattanooga Walk. Instead of 
walking to Chattanooga, however, the walk 
will begin at the Read House in Chattanooga 
and end at Gailor Hall. (Before midnight, it 
is hoped.) 

"Tudor S. Long taught English at 
Sewanee from 1922 to 1956. From 1942 
to 1956 he was chairman of the English 
department. His home was in Summerville, 
South Carolina, and his degree was from 
Cornell University. He was a deeply respected 
and beloved member of the Sewanee faculty, 
and so it is fitting that the Chattanooga Walk 
be dedicated to him."

A n informal record prepared for 
the Sewanee Ski and Outing Club. 
Dr. Caldwell is professor of philosophy 
in the College. 

I was up at about 3:00 A.M. December 6 in 
order to prepare for the walk. The rain which had 
been forecast had not come— all of the stars were 
out. It was a clear but warm morning. I wore track 
pants and T-shirt under my warmup suit, and I 
decided to start out in my leather Tiger Munichs, 
since they gave me more support than the lighter 
nylon running shoes. 

We met at 4:00 A.M. in front of Gailor. To 
everyone's surprise I was there ahead of time. I 
had looked forward to this day for years, and 
I was eager to get started. A number of people who 
had signed up did not show. Besides myself there 
were only five: Ellis Misner, David Vineyard, 
Nancy Longnecker, Ellie Scott, and alumnus Tom 
Phelps, '74, with whom I used to discuss this trip. 
Sewanee Ski and Outing worker Melissa Johnson 
had the old trusty SS&OC station wagon loaded 
with all kinds of good things to eat and drink, 
with various foot remedies, etc. Helping her were 
John Miller and Cece Smith. 

We all managed to get into the SS&OC wagon 
and we took off for Chattanooga at about 4:20 
A.M. Since the Monteagle truck stop was closed 
we decided to eat in Chattanooga. We ate at a 
motel restaurant across from the Read House so 
that we could be on the lookout for the TV people 
who were supposed to cover our departure, but 
they never showed up. 

After breakfast we started our walk up Broad 
Street from the Read House at 6:15 A.M. CST. 
The sun was not up yet, but it was light enough 
to see. Ellis and Tom quickly left the rest of us 
behind. As we were going around Lookout Moun- 
tain we witnessed a beautiful sunrise. We were in 
high spirits, and there was something especially 
memorable about the early morning part of our 
jaunt. At a rest stop at a filling station in Tiftonia 
I waited for the girls, but David Vineyard went 
on. This was the last time I saw him except on 
long, straight stretches, when we could see him at 
least a mile up the road. During the first part of the 
trip we alternated walking and running. David had 
an excess of energy, seeming to go out of his way 
to jump over bushes and hedges. 

Nancy, Ellie and I continued on Highway 41 
until we reached the Tennessee River between our 
second and third hour. On the way we saw people 
getting ready to do some hang-glider flying off a 
nearby cliff (where an Atlanta man had been 
killed a couple of years ago; the flyers assured us 
that it was due to his lack of experience, and they 
urged us to come back and try it. We thanked them 
and went on our way.) We were all surprised at 
the number of things we" noticed along the way 
that we would never have seen had we been driving 
through. The cliffs and formations before we | 
to the river stood out as if we had never seen them 
before. There were birds, and trees, and unfamiliar 
houses in a new landscape. 

Safer than Hang-Gliding? 

It was a beautiful walk along the river. Actually, 
we ran down the hills and on the flats. Ellie 
skipped blithely along, but Nancy and I were 
having foot problems. The arch of my left foot, 
which I had injured in a long run on Thanksgiving 
Day, was giving me trouble. Nancy already had 
blisters. It turned out that her own running shoes, 
which she had sent home for, had not arrived in 
time, and that she was wearing borrowed shoes. 
Melissa and her helpers were doing a great job of 
checking on all of us, providing us with Gatorade, 
Cokes, and bandages. At about mile 15 I decided 
to switch to hiking boots, which gave me more 
support. Nancy in the meantime had covered the 
sore areas on her feet with moleskin and was 
getting along much better. When we reached the 
bridge over the Tennessee River just before noon 
we were still running on the downhill stretches, 
but we did not run much after that. 

We ate lunch a couple of miles beyond the river. 
I almost forgot to tell about crossing the narrow 
bridge. It was beautiful, but a little frightening > 
times. When cars came from both directions w e 
had to climb up in the bridge railing until they 
went by. While we were eating and pampering 
sore feet, Phil Williams and Sue Wiygul stopped by 
on the way back from a shopping trip to Chatta- 
nooga. About a mile further along they picked up 
David Vineyard and took him back to Sewanee- 
David had injured his knee several days ago, and as 
he neared the halfway point he decided not to 
continue. At this stage Ellis and Tom were beyond 
Jasper and nearing Kimball, but Melissa reported 
that both were having muscle cramps. 

The. four miles either side of Jasper were so 
unpleasant that I regretted not having bypassed 
Jasper on the Interstate. Here was the only heavy 
traffic that we had. Earlier we had walked in the 

iddle of the highway and moved a little only for 
the occasional car. Around Jasper the cars and 
trucks were almost bumper-to-bumper, but after 
we passed Kimball the cars were few and far 

What would Mr. Long have said? 

Because of leg cramps Ellis decided to stop at 
about mile 35. We saw him briefly before he 
returned to Sewanee in the SS&OC wagon. A few 
miles further along at Martin Springs, just before 
ie starts up Monteagle Mountain, Tom decided to 
call it quits. After riding around a while in the 
SS&OC wagon with Melissa he decided to have 
another go at it, and he started off from Martin 
Springs by himself. 

Just after dark the rain which had been fore- 
cast finally arrived, along with fog. It was only a 
drizzle and so did not cause great discomfort. 
Tom, however, had it much worse going up the 
mountain, and when he reached Monteagle he 
decided that he had had enough of dodging cars 

and trucks in the fog. So, he called friends in 
Sewanee to come and get him. 

In the meantime Nancy, Ellie and I had been 
joined on the road between Kimball and Martin 
Springs by Dean Puckette and Dr. Gerald Smith, 
each of whom walked several miles with us while 
the other was driving the dean's yellow Inter- 
national carryall. This boosted our morale. It was 
dark and wet and getting colder— and foggier. 

At the Martin Springs Interstate exit we stopped 
for a late supper at an all-night restaurant. Here at 
the forty-one-mile mark Nancy declared that she 
would not go further. I was hoping that the two 
girls could make it all the way to Sewanee and 
thus show up the men, but Nancy had an im- 
portant organic chemistry quiz on Monday and 
needed to get back to study for it. Had it not been 
for that chemistry quiz I think that Nancy would 
have stayed with Us. Melissa and her crew dined 
with us, and we learned that Tom had dropped 
out in Monteagle. So that left only Ellie and me to 
uphold the honor of the younger generation. What 
would Mr. Long have said? And what would 
Bishop Rose think about the students of our time? 

Walk to Atlanta Remembered 

When I went to Sewanee in 1932 
I heard repeatedly of Mr. Long's walk 
to Chattanooga with several students. 
Ted Bratton and I decided that we 
uld like to walk the next distance, 
which would be from Sewanee to 
Nashville, and try to persuade Mr. 
Long to join us. He declined, stating 
that he would wait until his record was 
broken and then he would walk the 

ext distance. 

I believe that it was either the 3rd 

ir the 6th of December in 1936 that 
Lee Belford, Charles Robinson, Dick 
Kirchoffer and I trained for a walk to 
Atlanta-the next distance. Mr. Long 

nd that, of course, he had been 
kidding about going the next distance 

nd didn't believe that we would be 
stupid enough to take up his jesting 
gesture. At any rate, we started out 
at five o'clock on a Friday morning; 
lost one of our members at Jasper 
(after eating a candy bar and drinking 

a bottle of beer); in Chattanooga we 
lost another with stone bruises. Early 
Monday morning Charlie Robinson 
and I arrived on the outskirts of 
Atlanta. Our condition you can well 

For training we, of course, took 
long walks on and around the Moun- 
tain for weeks in advance. We wore 
high-topped comfortable shoes, heavy 
woolen socks and a pair of thin socks 
next to our feet (we had several 
changes of these en route}. We drank 
no tea, coffee, or other stimulants, 
thinking it would provide us with 
more natural and prolonged energy (I 
am not sure that it made much differ- 
ence). We walked sixty minutes and 
rested ten; at meal times we used 
whatever restaurants that were along 
the road, taking out a maximum of 
one hour for these stops. Twice en 
route we stopped for baths— these 
helped a great deal. We of course 

walked day and night, the last eight or 
ten hours in light falling snow. 

After a bath in Atlanta we got on 
a slow train to Chattanooga, where we 
were met by Sewanee friends, driven 
to the Mountain, and provided with a 
party— the last thing we wanted. I am 
glad they were not thoughtful enough 
to have thrown a dance in our honor. 

Well, here are a few rambling 
memories of that Atlanta walk. Why 
anybody could be that stupid t don't 
know, but I was young then. I simply 
wanted to prove that it could be done. 

Give my warm greeting to the 
crew that sets out for the Chattanooga 
walk. I wish that I could be there to 
take part in it. The Tudor S. Long 
Memorial Chattanooga Walk sounds 
like a great idea. 

Taken from a letter from the Rt. Rev. 
DavidS. Rose, D.D., Bishop of the 
Diocese of Southern Virginia, as 
reported in the Sewanee Purple. 

Turn Missed at Mile 55 

Except for pains in my feet, I was feeling fine. 
With about forty-one miles covered, the fourteen 
miles left seemed like no great challenge. So, 
unfortunately, I did not protect my feet from the 
many blisters which were forming. The rain prob- 
ably encouraged and accelerated the blisters. At 
any rate, during the last miles into Sewanee I felt 
as if I were walking on knives. 

I don't remember at what time Ellie and I left 
the Minit Burger restaurant at Martin Springs, but 
there was a light, blowing rain in our faces as we 
started toward the foot of the mountain on the 
eastbound part of 1-24. Earlier the three of us 
has been singing Christmas carols, and on this leg 
of the trip Ellie and I resumed the singing. A 
couple of miles up the mountain Melissa met us 
for the last time as she came down to check on us. 

We did not have the difficulty in dodging the 
downcoming cars and trucks that Tom had had 
earlier. Maybe at close to midnight there were 
fewer of them. At the top of the mountain we 
encountered Dean Puckette and Cece, who had 
come back to see how we were doing. It was very 
good to see them, as we were getting tired of 
walking in the fog and rain. For the last seven or 
eight miles we were on our own. 

Coming into Monteagle we encountered a 
headwind, and for the first time we were cold. 
Also, the fog was so thick that we were afraid of 
passing the Highway 64 turnoff without seeing 
it. My feet were causing me great pain, but Ellie 
was as bouncy as ever. Between Monteagle and 
Sewanee one of the Sewanee workmen stopped 
and offered us a ride in his pickup truck. He 
seemed very puzzled when we turned him down. 
The fog was so thick as we approached Sewanee 
that we did not see the Sewanee turnoff, and 
continued a short distance on the bypass before 
realizing our mistake. 

Ellie and I had both been invited to some 
dormitory Christmas parties, and we had thought 
that we would check them out when we got back. 
But it was after 1:30 A.M. when we finally 
stumbled into Sewanee, and we easily decided 
that what we wanted most of all was a warm bath 
and sleep. In my warm tub I dozed off and woke 
up just before daylight. The water was cold, and 
I had a crick in my neck. Fortunately, I did not 
drown. As Dean Puckette remarked the next 
day, that would have been the ultimate irony for 
an old Whitewater paddler. 

Hikers Nancy Longnecker and Ellie Scott are joined 
by passing friends for lunch. Left to right: Phil 
Williams, Sue Wiygul, Longnecker, John Miller, Scott,

of Academy News 

by Anne Cook 

Mrs. Cook is the wife of 
Sewanee Academy's dean of 

Early one morning last fall I was to drive a 
Sewanee Academy student to Nashville in order to 
keep an appointment. He had a big physics quiz 
that day, yet the appointment was important, too. 
Before leaving the domain, the student asked me 
to stop by his instructor's house where the quiz 
was attached to the front door. 

The drive to Nashville was uneventful. I let the 
boy study for his mid-semester test and we were on 
time at the doctor's office. We stopped by Friday's 
for lunch, and after a hearty chef's salad, the stu- 
dent took his physics exam at the table and 
pledged it. Then we started the trip back to 

On the way home, this boy checked his paper 
and told me about the problems he had gotten 
wrong, so that he knew his grade before his instruc- 
tor did. I was impressed by the obvious health of 
the honor code at Sewanee Academy. 

The honor code is given to each student who 
enters the Academy in his (or her) first few days. 
The student is required to sign it. 

"I vividly remember arriving with my big 
steamer trunk at the bus station in Monteagle as a 
new boy, fourteen years old," recalls a '63 grad. 
He remembers thinking how silly it was having to 
sign the code. Then he was told to hang it in his 
room and live by it. Quickly becoming accustomed 
to seeing the code framed on his wall, he lived by it 
because those around him did. It was so simple he 
didn't think much about it. 

A decade later this graduate was teaching in 
public school where cheating was rampant. His . 
class simply could not believe his stories about the 
honor system at Sewanee Academy. 

No one knows exactly when the system began, 
but Honor Council records go back to 1917. The 
first Honor Council was composed of approximate- 
ly seven seniors who were chosen by the comman- 
dant of cadets and the chaplain at the beginning of 
the school year. Today's Honor Council is com- 
posed of nine members, from the sophomore and

junior classes as well as the senior class. The stu- 
dent body recommends members to the Honor 
Council with final selection made by the Headmas- 
ter in consultation with the faculty adviser. 

Ralph Waldron, Latin instructor and chairman 
of the language department, has been the faculty 
adviser to the Honor Council for the past ten years. 
He believes that the honor system works as well 
as it does because it is student-administered. New 
students are shown the way by older students. 

"Come along, you can do it too," says the old 
student, and the newer ones follow. Small classes 
with plenty of extra instruction available if needed 
help prevent the pressure to cheat. It is not un- 
common for instructors to leave the classroom 
during examinations. 

It is in the nature of things that students don't 
value the honor code until after they leave it, as 
indicated in a recent letter from a former student: 

"The Academy spoiled me in many ways last 
year— the small classes, all the free periods and tu- 

torials. We actually got to know our teachers well. 
And of course I miss the honor code." 

Chairman of the Honor Council, Tom Ham, 
feels there is more understanding among the stu- 
dent body than in the past. 

"This past summer I read the student hand- 
book very carefully concerning the honor system, 
and it states that the main function of the Council 
is to help the student body— not persecute." 
Tommy saw the main goal for the Honor Council 
this year to be one of opening up Council actions 
so that students didn't dread or avoid talks with its 

This year has been an educational experience 
for all nine members. They listen to excuses at 
times so original as to stun the imagination, and 
they have come to realize the truth is seldom easy 
to find. 

In an age that clamors for the rebirth of both 
discipline and moral development in our educa- 
tional institutions, Sewanee Academy's honor code 
is a tradition well worth keeping. 


Soccer at Mid-Season 

When its starting line-up is healthy 
and free of injuries, the 1975-76 
Sewanee Academy soccer team is 
one of the strongest in Tennessee. 
Co-captain Andy Jenldn, the wizard 
striker who racked up eleven goals 
in the first five games, and co- 
captain David Cook, who at center 
half directs the offensive plays and 
holds down the central position on 
defense, are the driving force of a 
well-balanced team. 

Most of the starters are graduates 
of last year's junior varsity— James 
Peck, Maury Wingo, Jeff Van 
Sicklen, Eban Goodstein, John 
Poitevent and Clyde Westrom. 
Only the captains and right inside, 
Archie Baker, remain from last 
year's first eleven. The team has 
been strengthened greatly, on the 
other hand, by the addition of a 
high-spirited and talented transfer, 
Will Prioleau, and a novice goalie 
who plays like a veteran, Melvin 

The team began the season by 
playing impressively but losing 4-3 
in its opener against St. Andrew's. 
Undampened, they won the next 
three matches by playing good 
short-pass, control soccer. Then in 
their fifth game, against McGavock 
(school population 3,300), ' the 
Tigers had to settle for a tie after 
leading 3-0 with nine minutes re- 

The next game was an exciting 
triumph as the Academy romped 
over St. Andrew's, the only team to 
have defeated the Tigers (in the 
season's opener). Exhilaration was 
marred by injuries to four key 
players including Jenkin and full- 
back Wingo. The injuries no doubt 
contributed to the Tigers' subse- 
quent 2-1 loss to Hillsboro. With 
those injuries and some sickness 
plaguing the team, it is possible 
that the Tigers' strong record will 
slump for a few games, but Coach 
Phil White expects all of the team 
to be sound within a couple of 
weeks. If so, the Academy Tigers 
should be the team to beat in the 
Tennessee Winter Tournament in 
late February. 


Booters ranked 5th in Tennessee 
after loss to Castle Heights in 
Winter Invitational 


The Academy 1975-76 varsity bas- 
ketball team is coached by John 
Jarrell, aerospace professor in the 
College until the termination by the 
government of the AFROTC unit 
iast spring. Jarrell is an alumnus of 
the University who played under 
Coach Dave Drake back in the 
1940s. The junior varsity is coached 
by veteran mentor Bob Wood, who 
is in his thirty-fourth year at the 
Academy. The dozen boys who 
make up the junior team are from 
the freshman, sophomore and 
junior classes. 

The varsity team is headed by 
seniors John Patten and Tommy 
Ham. Regulars are Erich Baker, 
Britt Brantley, Keith Clay and 
junior Jimbo Hill. 

The high point of the season to 
date was the 72-68 win over 
mountain-top arch-rival St. An- 
drew's on December 12 in the St. 
Andrew's gym. The Academy, 
paced by John Patton, retained 
their King of the Mountain status 
following their win in football 
(42-0) and wrestling (28-23). The 
team has eight games left on its 
schedule before going to the 
District Tournament on February 

Women's basketball at the 
Academy is now in its second 
season. Since the girls not only 
compete against schools with a 
much larger female enrollment 
but also against girls who have 
played competitively since the sixth 
grade, theirs is a mostly uphill 
battle. They have outscored their 
opponents, however, on three 
occasions to date, in games against 
Temple, Bridgeport and St. 


The 1975-76 wrestling team began 
its season with high hopes. The 
team was determined to have a 
winning season, which has eluded 
the Academy wrestlers for some 
five or six years. Returning from 
last year's 2-6-1 season, Bill 
Harrison, Chip Carrier, Mike Walton 
and David Acuff formed a good 
foundation for a strong team. Yet 

Robert EUla, A '76 

the team also relied heavily on new 
men to post a winning season: Jay 
Robillard, Allen Buck, Phil Rice, 
Mark Gillespy, Tim Williams, Jeff 
Davis, Will Kern and Phil Sullivan. 

■The season started against 
Grundy County at home. Expecting 
a close match, the Academy was 
none the less disappointed to lose 
33-31. The next match at home was 
somewhat better as the Academy 
tied Riverdale 34-34. The third 
home match was the sweetest, the 
Academy defeating Tennessee 
Temple 63-12. 

Then began a series of away 
matches, the first at Grundy 
County for a 36-35 victory. Colum- 
bia Military Academy was the next 
opponent, and the Academy man- 
aged a strong victory, 42-27. 
Hungering for revenge from last 
year's defeat, the Academy traveled 
to St. Andrew's and won 28-23. 

Back home for the last match 
before Christmas vacation, the 
Academy rolled over Marion 
County 60-12. 

Two Academy wrestlers distin- 
guished themselves in the post- 
Christmas invitational tournament 
held at Shelbyville. Chip Carrier 
won the second-place medal in the 
heavyweight division and David 
Acuff won a third in the 145-lb. 

The final match of the season 
was at home against St. Andrew's. 
The outlook was poor since the St. 
Andrew's team had become much 
stronger, while the Academy team 
was suffering from injuries. The 
Academy made a courageous effort 
but lost 36-21. 

Pleased with a 5-3-1 season, the 
team looked forward to the District 
Tournament in Chattanooga on 
January 30-31. Chip Carrier won 
a fourth-place medal there and was 
scheduled to compete in the 
regional meet February 22. 

Golf School 

The University of the South will 
co-sponsor two golf schools this 
summer with Dave Noble, a PGA 
golf professional. The sessions, 
which will be from June 6-19 and 
June 20— July 3, are designed to 
teach each student at his own level. 
The school is open to young men 
aged eleven to eighteen, and will 
use the facilities at the University. 

Noble and Walter Bryant, direc- 
tor of athletics and golf coach at 
the University, will direct the in- 
struction. The curriculum is based 
on a fundamental approach toward 
the various facets of golf. Guest 
professionals will coach different 
golf skills, conduct clinics, and 
demonstrate various shots, thereby 
expanding the program. 

Those enrolled in the school 
will be able to use the University 
gym, swimming pool, bowling alley, 
tennis courts, ball fields and other 
on-campus facilities as time permits 
during their sessions. College stu- 
dent counselors will assist in super- 
vising recreational and free-time 

The cost of each session is 
$375. Those interested in further 
information should write Dave 
Noble, Route 5, McMinnville, 
Tennessee 37110, or call (615) 



Starting this fall the School of 
Theology will use its property, 
Bairnwick, the spacious residence 
of the late Rev. and Mrs. George 
B. Myers, as a vital adjunct to St. 
Luke's Hall. It will have classrooms 
and offices and will accommodate 
the Fellows-in-Residence and 
Bishops-in-Residence programs as 
well as the headquarters of Theo- 
logical Education by Extension. 
It will also have some rooms for 
seminarians and for visitors. 

For the past three years Bairn- 
wick has held the French House, 
and the University is looking for 
new space for that thriving institu- 
tion. Started in 1973, it has fifteen 
residents. It has two goals, its direc- 
tor Francois David, says: to help 
students speak French and live in 
an environment conducive to 
speaking French, and to serve as 
a cultural center for French in the 

Standardized tests given after 
the first year showed that new resi- 
dents with several years of French 
and limited previous experience in 
speaking improved up to eighty per 
cent. "Results can be spectacular 
during the first year," David says. 
In its first two years the French 
House turned out seven students 
who went to France. 

Francois David was born in 
Poitiers, France, in 1949. He has a 
diploma for teaching French as a 
foreign language by audio-visual 
methods and a license in English. 
He teaches part time in the College 
French department and has taught 
at the Academy. Among his pro- 
jects is the securing of exchange 
videocassettes from the University 
of Poitiers. He would also like to 
have a tape recorder and language- 
lab equipment in the French House. 

Bairnwick was willed to the 
School of Theology by its original 
owners, who occupied it until they 
died, Professor Myers in 1961 and 

Mrs. Myers in 1970. At one time it 
served as a school directed by Mrs. 
Myers, and many faculty and other 
resident children received their first 
tutelage there. The Myerses had 
eight children of their own. 

The Sewanee Youth Center (for- 
merly the Boys' Club) is being 
repaired, refurbished and revital- 
ized. Spark plug of the various 
projects is Mark Abdelnour, C'77, 
co-director of the center and resi- 
dent there. His enthusiasm and 
determination take one back to 
1968, when Brad Whitney, C'70, 
organized about forty College stu- 
dents, persuaded the University 
administration to give them old 
Palmetto, which was scheduled for 
razing, and $6,000 to move it, and 
set up a clubhouse and activity 
center for the boys of the commun- 
ity. When women students arrived 
the following year they joined in 
and girls as well as boys were pro- 
vided for— hence the change of 

The center has a small budget 
from the Community Chest and the 
student activities fee, but more was 
needed for necessary repairs, par- 
ticularly plumbing, heating and 

Palermo Ahoy! 

The island of Sicily and the Bay of 
Naples are the areas to be toured 
by a group escorted by Dr. and 
Mrs. Charles M. Binnicker early this 

The group will depart from Nash- 
ville for Palermo on May 27 and 
will return from Naples to Nashville 
on June 11. Air travel will be on 
regularly scheduled Braniff, TWA, 
and Alitalia flights. 

Although the tour will emphasize 
the ancient Greek and Roman 
remains, there are many other 
colorful points of interest on the 
itinerary. The main stops in Sicily 
will include Palermo, Monreale, 
Segesta, Erice, Selinunte, Agrigen- 
to, Piazza Armerina, Syracuse and 
Taormina. From Naples there will 
be opportunities to visit Pompeii, 
Mt. Vesuvius, and Amalfi drive, 
Capri and Ischia, as well as the 
many interesting sights in the city 
of Naples itself. There will also be 
ample time for relaxation in the 
sun beside the sea and for wander- 
ing through shops and markets and 
for enjoying the picturesque coun- 
tryside, Dr. Binnicker says. 

The cost for the entire tour is 
$1,250.00, based on double occu- 
pancy. This price includes round- 
trip air fare from Nashville, bus 
transportation to and from airports, 
bus transportation between sites 
in Sicily, all hotels, all but eight 
meals, and a half-day tour of either 
Pompeii or Naples. For single 
rooms it will be necessary to charge 
a supplement of $100.00. 

All arrangements have been made 
by Clark Cruise and Travel Service 
of Huntsville, Alabama. The tour 
guide, Dr. Binnicker, is associate 
professor of classical languages and 
former dean of men in the College. 
His wife and fellow guide was Meg 
Duncan, C'73.

electrical work. Mark and another 
college student who lives in the 
center, Forrestt Severtson, C'78, 
have done a good deal of the work 
themselves, since both are technical 
types, with club members helping. 
They set up a raffle to raise enough 
for materials to do more. 

The Youth Center also plans to 
re-initiate regular instruction in 
sports and other activities. Already 
an art teacher is employed to help 
make up for the public school's 
having to drop that instruction. The 
young men would like to clear land 
around the center and make a 
basketball court, and they plan to 
face the outside of the building 
with masonry. The two residents 
pay the center for their lodging 
what they would have to pay for 
dormitory rooms, and all their 
work is voluntary. 

Mark Abdelnour hopes that by 
the time he graduates, in 1977, the 
service will be a civic center, instead 
of just a youth center, with classes 
in reading and practical writing, 
typing, cooking, etc. 

"We have resources that aren't 
being used and needs that aren't 
being met," Abdelnour says. "I 
think it's a waste. I want that place 
to be every bit as appealing as the 
Bishop's Common to the children 
and young people of our commun- 
ity. All it takes is a little money and 
a lot of work." 

Sewanee Inn Privately Run 

The restaurant of the Sewanee Inn 
has been turned over to private 
responsibility and has been oper- 
ated since the beginning of the 
current semester by Hughes H. 
Brewer of Cowan and his wife, 
Bobby Jones Brewer. 

This is a development devoutly 
hoped for by the University admin- 
istration, since in recent years the 
inn never quite seemed to create 
the sort of informal elegance and 
food variety for which it had earlier 
been famous. 

The Brewers will probably also 
administer the motel units if and 

when these are no longer needed 
for dormitory space. That could be 
this fall, if the old Emerald-Hodg- 
son Hospital building is converted 
to dormitory use. 

Mr. and Mrs. Brewer have re- 
decorated the restaurant and 
changed the menu to one of greater 
variety and appeal, with many 
pleasant touches like home-baked

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

Mrs. Brewer was educated at 
Martin College, Pulaski, Tennessee. 
She is active in disaster work for

The Sewanee Inn was built 
in 1957, of mountain sandstone, 
to provide high-quality accommo- 
dations for visitors. It was the gift 
of a few alumni and friends who 
chose to remain anonymous. The 
late Bishop Frank A. Juhan oversaw 
its construction and Mrs. Clara 
Shumate, now retired in Cali- 
fornia, was the first manager. 

Private institutions continue to 
serve a vital role in higher education 
in this country because private 
institutions are a check and a bal- 
ance to a sometimes overwhelming 
governmental presence in the 
governance of public higher educa- 
tion. One of the great virtues of 
private institions is their ability to 
assist public ones when there is 
too much governmental interfer- 
ence in their affairs, because we can 
be free to say things that the public 
institutions have difficulty saying, 
and because we can illustrate the 
virtues of autonomous and inde- 
pendent educational administra-

Bleeding Students 

One out of every three students in 
the College (330) turned out at the 
last Red Cross drive to donate 
blood. After the allergic, anemic, 
under-110-pounders, etc., were 
weeded out, students gave 250 of 
the 301 pints donated by the com- 
munity, more than double the 
quota of 125. Professor Gilbert 
Gilchrist, who has directed the 
effort every year since 1968, com- 
mented, "The students may be 
apathetic about some things but 
give them something they think 
worth while and they really come 
through in a big way." 

Delta Kappa Epsilon won the 
annual $25 for the most blood, 
with 59% of the members giving. 
Maibeth Porter, proctor of Hoff- 
man Hall, led her dorm to the lead 
among the women. 

Dr. Gilchrist also praised the 
Blue Key leadership fraternity men 
who, headed by Brad Gioia, '76, 
set up and dismantled the mobile 
unit; Major Otto Bailey, retired 
Academy instructor who acted as 
floor manager; Mrs. Jeanette Avent, 
director of women volunteers; 
Mrs. Pamela Hodge, head nurse of 
Emerald-Hodgson Hospital, who 
"turned out a host of nurses," 
(one or two bringing small babies); 
all of Sewanee's physicians, organ- 
ized by Dr. Roger Way, who came 
at one time or another to ensure 
a doctor's presence at all times; 
and the Sewanee Women's Service 
League headed by Kimberley 
Matthews, who "did a magnificent 
job staffing tables and canteen." 

Parents' Weekend 

Parents' Weekend at the College in 
its third year since birth was again 
a smash, with upwards of 850 par- 
ents attending and good-naturedly 
overlooking crowded conditions to 
enjoy the opportunity of entering 
into the life of their young. As 
before, the program was a relaxed 
one allowing many activity options 
for sharing— hiking, golf, tennis, 
attending classes and just shooting 
the breeze. The organization work 
is done by a student committee, 
headed this year by Miller Hunter,

From Woods Lab 

Dr. William B. Guenther, professor 
of chemistry and chairman of the 
chemistry department in the Col-

cember and already going into wide 
use. Called Chemical Equilibrium: 
A Practical Introduction for the 
Physical and Life Sciences, it was 
published by Plenum Press of New 
York and London. 

A major innovation of the book 
is a series of graphs, over a hundred, 
drawn by the University's com- 
puter-driven plotter. Dr. Clay Ross 
of the mathematics department 
engineered this aspect of the work 
and his complete program takes up

Dr. Edward Carlos of the fine arts 
faculty spent part of his sabbatical 
for the first semester in Scotland, 
where he had been commissioned 
to create a liturgical painting-tap- 
estry for St. Michael and All Saints' 
Church, Edinburgh. The work 
measures 25' x 10' x 10', and is 
titled "St. Michael's Triumph." It 
goes on public display annually, 
from September 2 through Novem- 
ber 8. 

Dr. Carlos has been invited to 
return to Scotland as Iona Abbey 
summer artist-in-residence; to exe- 
cute a mural painting for St. Co- 
lumbo's Church, Perth, Australia; 
and to have a one-man exhibit next

"Model of a Good Existing Under- 
graduate Comparative Literature 
Program at a Small College" to the 
Southern Comparative Literature 
Association meeting in Knoxville 
in February. This drew warm 
plaudits for the fledgling program 
from recognized leaders in the field. 
Dr. Schaefer says, "On finding 
that our requirement of two 
foreign languages was possible be- 
cause of the fifteen semester hours 
of language requirement which all 
our students must fulfill, my col- 
leagues applauded and expressed 
their admiration for an institution 
which, they said, did not compro- 
mise its standards even in the face 
of passing trends. Professor Claus 
Cl'uver, director of undergraduate 
studies in comparative literature at 
Indiana University, which is at 
present the leading institution in 
the field, told me that we were 
actually doing more for undergrad- 
uates than they do and that they 
would welcome our majors in their 
graduate program. Even Professor 
Haskell Block, the president of 
the national Comparative Literature 
Association, assured me that this 
was the most honest, best-rounded 
program he knew of." 

Mrs. Schaefer reported that one 
of the officers of the association 
who was on the lookout for a place 
where her children could receive 
a genuine education declared she 
now knew where to send them.

Theological Extension Fans Out 

Theological Education by Exten- 
sion, a project of the School of 
Theology directed by its Professor 
Charles Winters, is taking hold to 
an extent gratifying to its founders. 
Many dioceses now have trained 

mentors working with groups of lay 
persons following a full course of 
theological studies. Ten American 
Indians, three with earned doctoral 
degrees, are taking the course to 
train ministers to serve their people 
without losing their own cultural 
values (see January Episcopalian). 
There are groups of students cur- 
rently at work with mentors in 
Alabama, Tennessee, including four 
groups in Chattanooga alone, and 
the dioceses of Arizona, Centra] 
Gulf Coast, Rio Grande, Alaska and 
Rochester. Several other dioceses 
will begin studies in March or 
September. The project was begun 
with a grant from the Episcopal 
Church Foundation and is co- 
sponsored by agencies involved, 
such as dioceses, parishes, and the

To Bolster Classes 
—The Alumni Council 

The class effort will be the focus of 
the Alumni Council meeting in 
Sewanee April 2-3. A plan to re- 
vamp the class structure to create 
the climate for a higher percentage 
of alumni donors and a conse- 
quent boost in dollar support for 
the Million Dollar Program will be 
considered. Other areas of concern 
are the formation of new Sewanee 
clubs and upgirding of existing 
ones, and alumni support for the 
admissions program.

wanee happenings. It was a hard 
act to follow last year's program 
featuring Dean Mary Sue Cushman 
(his wife) and young women repre- 
senting the four Sewanee college 
classes. Peyton Bibb, C'63, was 
elected president for 1976. Add a 
score more and you have the 
attendance at the first Christmas 
reception for parents, plus current 
and prospective students, at the 
home of national alumni president 
George ("Crow") Elliott, C'51, and 
his wife, Betsy. A beautiful place 
for a warm and happy occasion! 

A number present expressed 
interest in the Alumni Summer 
College to be held in Sewanee on 
July 11-17 and plan to attend.

New Sewanee Clubs 

Some eight cities having 100 or 
more alumni have no Sewanee 
Club. After a feasibility study was 
made, Alumni Director John

with local alumni the possibilities 
and advantages to both the Sewa-

Admires Gen. Kirby-Smith 


April 18, 1975 
Office of the Chancellor: 

I want to give the enclosed small 
donation to the University of the South 
in memory of Edmund Kirby-Smith. 

1 have only passed through Sewanee 
on one occasion several years ago. The 
beauty of this great university on top of 
the mountain is most impressive, but the 
thing that impressed me the most was the 
plaque in your beautiful chapel to 
Edmund Kirby-Smith. If my memory 
serves me correctly, it read: 
Edmund Kirby-Smith 
Cadet, United States Military 

Colonel, United States Army 
Major General, Confederate States of 

Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, 

University of the South 
It was then simply inscribed with the 
date of his birth and the date of his 
death. I have seen plaques and memorials 
to great men in cathedrals and chapels 
all over the world, from the crypt of John 
Paul Jones at the Naval Academy to the 
simple stone on the floor of Westminster 
Abbey inscribed "Winston Spencer 
Churchill," but I have never seen a plaque 
that moved me more and so eloquently 
expressed the mark of a man. "Cadet," as 
a young man, showed his determination 
and dedication. "Colonel, U, S, Army," 
showed his rise in his middle years to 
professional excellence. This would be 
the equivalent ^f a lieutenant general 
in today's army. "Major General in the 
Army of the Confederage States of 
America" exemplified the esteem in 
which he was held by his countrymen 
at his prime. "Professor of Mathematics, 
University of the South," in his twilight 
years showed his rededication to serving 
the youth of this country, as he instruct- 
ed the young men of Sewanee not only 
in the principles of mathematics but 
also in the principles of life. 

This simple plaque gives the history 
of a man in a life well spent and full of 
dedication and devotion. In these 
troubled times when America is crying 
for leadership, I know that this plaque 
is an inspiration to the young men of 
the University of the South, and this 
small donation is to help insure that 
leadership will always be provided by 
the alumni of this great institution.

For Alumni College 

July 8, 1975 

As an alumnus with continuing 
interest in the academic and intellectual 
life of Sewanee, as well as in furthering 
ways to involve more alumni in that 
life after graduation, I wish to suggest 
that the Alumni Association establish a 
summer "continuing education" program. 
Many other schools have developed very 
successful offerings of this kind in recent 
years, and I know from my own work 
of continuing education for clergy that 
such programs can be immensely 

In a time of great intellectual 
ferment, social flux, and ethical un- 
certainty there is a growing need for 
opportunities to explore and discuss the 
ideas and issues clamoring for man's 
attention. Moreover, there is a need for 
this to be done responsibly, with 
thorough grounding in the intellectual 
and moral heritage of civilization and 
with the rigor of mind appropriate to 
liberally educated persons. 

Surely few institutions are as well 
equipped, academically and religiously, 
for such an undertaking as Sewanee, for 
it would entail nothing other than an 
extension of its regular offerings in the 
liberal arts to its alumni and friends. 

Every summer the Mountain is alive 
with outstanding teachers and a myriad 
of extracurricular activities. Every year, 
too, the scope of Sewanee's academic 
resources is enlarged, embracing new 
disciplines and courses of which many 
alumni have had little or no experience. 
And of course the natural beauty and 
amenities of the Mountain remain 

The kind of program I envision 
might be scheduled to overlap with the 
Summer Music School, for too few 
alumni have experienced this outstand- 
ing feature of Sewanee's life. 

These are very random and prelimi- 
nary thoughts, but 1 hope they inspire 
you to get together a group of sympa- 
thetic and imaginative Arcadians to devise 
a Sewanee Alumni Summer Mountain 

(The Rev.) William N. McKeachie, C'66 
Toronto Diocesan Theologian 

September 26, 1975 

I was especially interested in the 
article in the September issue of the 
News regarding the visit of the seminary 
folk to Cincinnati. I'm enclosing an 
article from Ann Arbor Scene, summer 
1975 issue, which may more clearly 
explain why. The article is a reprint of 
one done for the Michigan Daily in one 
of its summer issues. The Daily is the 
University of Michigan newspaper. 
(The article mentioned tells of the 
joining forces of St. Clare ofAssisi, Mr. 
Euett's church, with Temple Beth Emeth 
Reformed Congregation to share a 
building, called Genesis of Ann Arbor. 
"It is the only place of worship in the 
world that is jointly owned by a 
Christian and a Jewish congregation," 
the article states.) 

The merger of our properties with 
Temple Beth Emeth took place in late 
December of 1974 and the idea, dream 
and process was dedicated in June of 
1975. We were all especially pleased that 
NBC "Nightly News" took an interest 
in what we had done and gave it a five- 
minute spot on one of their evening 
news shows earlier in the summer. 

Since both of the rabbis who have 
worked at Beth Emeth went to school 
at Hebrew Union we feel here a special 
touch with that place. 

I might add from a personal view- 
point that I suspect the education I 
received from Sewanee played a large 
part in opening me to the conclusion 
that our merger was natural and logical. 

(The Rev.) Douglas Evett, C'60 

March 27, 1975 
To the Editor: 

I have just received the latest edition of 
the Sewanee News, and was astounded 
to see that you have changed the name 
of your letters to the editor column to 
"Feedback." I am by trade a technical 
writer and editor, and am accustomed 
to seeing that word abused by semi- 
literate engineers, but to see it abused 
in the Sewanee News is intolerable. 
"Feedback" is a perfectly good 
noun, most commonly used to describe 
what happens in a public address system 
when the sound coming out of the 
speakers goes back into the microphone, 
back out the speakers and back into the 
microphone ... ad infinitum. It's a 
vicious circle, and in practice every 
effort is made to avoid feedback in a 
PA because of the high, painful sound 
it makes. 

I am not writing you a feedback, I 
am writing you a letter. If you would 
like a feedback, then I will mail you the 
issue of the Sewanee News which I just 
received, and then you can reprint it 
and mail it back to me. 

Dismal Record 

December, 1975 

The class of '55 has a dismal record 
of giving and I am ashamed of its support 
(even my own). It seems incredible to 
me that one could forget something 
which gave him so much. It is more 
important than ever to keep Sewanee 
strong. Even token gifts from alumni 
are significant symbols of interest and 

I have assisted in planning curricula 
for several universities. It is distressing 
to learn that great emphasis is placed 
on the "professional" portion of the 
curriculum. Seminars and courses which 
make a person aware of himself and his 
environment, physical and social, are 
neglected or are approached with apathy. 
Graduates may live and die oblivious 
to life. 

Sewanee educated me. It made me 
aware. It taught me how to lead a 
"quality" life. Sewanee also made me 
able to adapt (yes, with that precious 
liberal arts degree) to a profession, first 
military and later civilian. And, at forty- 
three, I have no doubt that I could adapt 

I wish that I could tell all the 
students now to cherish every moment 
of learning, of being aware. My life has 
been filled with wonderful things; 
however, the Sewanee period stands 
remarkably alone as the greatest of all. 

Surely other alumni must have 
similar feelings. The smallest gift 
expresses support. While other schools 
rush to specialization, let us keep 
vigorous with our gifts and support 
that distinct aware and flexible edu- 

I am not at all ashamed of being 
sentimental in these thoughts, expressed 
here. It is a part of that "quality life."

Grappling with the need to increase 
alumni support, the Alumni Council 
meeting April 3 adopted a dynamic 
plan to increase the percentage of 
alumni contributors by five per 
cent each year for the next five 

The plan is an outgrowth of the 
growing frustration of alumni lead- 
ers resulting from Sewanee's low 
percentage of alumni giving. While 
the basic research and design were 
done by the development staff, the 
plan was endorsed by the Alumni 
Council as an alumni function. In 
fact, the Council voiced an under- 
standing that increasing alumni 
participation is a task that can only 
be done by the alumni themselves. 

Called "Operation Task Force," 
the program is described by admin- 
istrators as one of the most vital 
ever undertaken for the University 
of the South. 

Marcus L. Oliver, director of 
annual giving, outlined the plan. 
Agents and sub-agents specifically 
for fund-raising will be named for 
each class, in numbers needed to 
allow optimal personal contact. 
That is, an agent in each class will 
be responsible for recruiting and 
overseeing sub-agents who in turn 
will get directly in touch with class- 
mates in their areas, fraternity 
brothers or special friends, which- 
ever seems best in each instance. 

The procedures, following 
familiar fund-raising patterns and 
adapted from those in effect at 
universities with strong giving 
records, were unanimously ap- 
proved by class and club chairmen 
here for the Alumni Council. " 'Ask' 
is the key part of 'task force,' " 
Oliver said. "We all have to ask." 
The leaders present deplored 
the record of alumni giving, which 
now stands at about 25 per cent. 
Why do three-fourths of Sewanee 
alumni not give? they questioned. 
"It is beyond my power to under- 
stand how alumni can take so much 
from this university and contribute 
nothing to it," said Associated 
Alumni president George B. Elliott 

Consensus was that it had not 
been brought home to alumni one 
by one that half their education at 
Sewanee has been paid by others, 
and that they are now the "others" 
on whom Sewanee must depend for 
its strong continuance. 

The plan, which has been care- 
fully worked out over a period of 
many months following a number 
of exploratory visits to other uni- 
versities, was discussed first at an 
executive session with Associated 
Alumni officers and then at the 
general Alumni Council. The re- 
sponsibilities of agents and sub- 
agents were acknowledged to be 

heavy and frequent rotation will be 
built in to ease the burden, it was 
agreed. Fund-raising will be sepa- 
rated from other class activities to 
allow maximum effort. Class 
reunions and class newsletters will 
continue to be the responsibility of 
class chairmen. 

The weight that prospective 
benefactors in business and founda- 
tions give to percentage of alumni 
giving was emphasized. Dr. Bennett, 
the Vice-Chancellor, who was pres- 
ent at the Alumni Council meeting, 
recalled instances when this might 
have been the deciding factor in 
"big ones that got away." 

Important as the raise in per- 
centage is, all the development staff 
agreed that "dollars are the name of 
the game." It's dollars that are need- 
ed, they said, to fill the gap be- 
tween income from tuition and en- 
dowment and the operating budget 
total. Alumni are the most appropri- 
ate and the most likely source. 
Warmest response was accorded 
Allen Reddick, student trustee, who 
outlined plans to bring the seniors 
into the Task Force. "We feel that 
this class, recognizing the needs, 
will be less reluctant. This will be 
an annual event. Perhaps the class 
of '76 will show you all how it can 
be done."

"You came here to work," said Dr. 
J. Jefferson Bennett, the Vice- 
Chancellor, addressing the Alumni 
Council here April 3. "You are 
giving your time and talents in a 
sense of stewardship. Our future 
is in your hands." 

He explained that each year's 
budget contains a "soft" spot, the 
difference between what is needed 
to operate in strength and the 
anticipated income from tuition 
and endowment. This is made up 
by voluntary giving. 

"We move in faith," Dr. Bennett 
said. "The faith was justified last 
year, largely through the personal 
challenge and Christian witness of 
Bob Ayres, but also through pro- 
fessional backup by the develop- 
ment staff." 

(Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, 
H'74, chairman of the Million Dollar 
Program for annual unrestricted 
giving, took a year off from his 
profession for that work and for 
world relief projects. He organized 
a challenge grant for increased giv- 
ing and personally brought in most 
of the seventeen members of the 
Chancellor's Society, each contribu- 
ting ten thousand or more budget- 
applicable dollars.) 

Dr. Bennett said the total of 
Million Dollar Program gifts to 
March 31 for this year was 
$772,988 toward $1,025,000 
budgeted. "At this time last year 
it was $607,000, and the year be- 
fore that $565,000." 

"You are on a winning team," 
he concluded, "but the game isn't 
over yet." 

Touching on other aspects of 
the University year, Dr. Bennett 
told the Alumni Council, "Contrary 
to what is true in almost every 
other church-related college we 
don't have an enrollment problem 
in the sense of trying to snatch 
warm bodies. We do have a problem 
in the sense that standards remain 
high and we continue to have to 
say 'no' to many people that we 
would like very much to be able to 
say 'yes' to. The college is over- 
enrolled in that there was no room 
this year for a number of students— 
except at the Inn. 

"We have no plans to expand 
enrollment, and if you hear any 
rumors to the effect that we do I 
wish you would scotch them. We 
hold to 1,000 as the optimal size 
in the College. There is still room 
for some growth at the Academy." 

Speaking of the faculty Dr. 
Bennett said, "We still have dedi- 
cated teachers, in spite of the 
regrettably low salary increase for 

the coming year— four per cent— 
which lags behind inflation. I can 
think of only one faculty member 
who voluntarily left in the five 
years since I have been here. 
"When I interview prospective 
faculty members I ask two ques- 
tions: first, do they like to teach? 
If they don't, particularly if they 
don't like to teach freshmen, they 
ought not to come here. Then I 
make sure they recognize that while 
we ask no religious preference, this 

is a Christian institution and the 
majority of people here have a re- 
ligious orientation. If they can't 
accept that intellectually they 
ought not to come here." 

He reported the completion on 
schedule of the new hospital (this 
page) and declared himself heart- 
ened by the initiation of seven new 
Sewanee clubs and the reactivation 
of two.

At the Alumni Council meeting 
April 2-3 Edward Watson, C'30, 
vice-president for bequests, spoke 
on alternative forms of deferred 
giving. The Rev. James Johnson, 
T.'58, vice-president for church 
support, clarified the goals for his 
area of responsibility and Warren 
Belser, C'50, vice-president for 
regions, spoke of activities in his 
overview and also in admissions 
for Richard Simmons, C'50, who 
could not be present. 

Albert Roberts III, C'50, vice- 
president for classes, was also unex- 
pectedly prevented from attending 

and his field was covered by presi- 
dent George Elliott and by Mark 
Oliver in presenting plans for Oper- 
ation Task Force, which is to be 
the work of class agents directed 
by Roberts. His input was incorpo- 
rated into the presentation (see 

Mr. Watson reminded the group 
of opportunities for gifts to Sewa- 
nee which current tax laws make 
especially attractive — the unitrust, 
annuity trust and pooled income 
fund. If one has a capital gain in 
a security, for instance, he can use 

being preserved here," he said. "We 
have a sense of community in the 
student body, civility in deport- 
ment, and the presence of the 
Church in the center of the campus 
and in our lives. The Order of 
Gownsmen is what it was when you 
were here. The honor code is as 
strong as ever. We have a Rhodes 
Scholar this year, and an NCAA 
Graduate Scholarship winner. 

"This is still a place of beauty 
and of excellence." 

that security to create a life-income 
trust without having to pay tax on 
the capital gain, improving income 
as well as having a tax saving. He 
recalled one example when the Uni- 
versity received a very substantial 
gift and the donor was also so much 
benefited that "he couldn't afford 
not to give." 

Edward Watson, a retired law- 
yer now resident in Sewanee, said 
that the possibilities were too com- 
plicated to cover in five minutes 
but urged everyone to keep the idea 
in mind and let the development 
office know if he or she wanted in- 
formation about specific situations. 
Mr. Johnson said that church 
support had two objectives: to raise 
the amount of money given by dio- 
ceses and parishes through Sewanee- 
in-the-Budget and to persuade more 
parishes to give something. Of 
1,800 Episcopal churches in the 
owning dioceses 500, or 27%, give, 
although not all on a regularly 
budgeted basis. He mentioned that 
Tennessee had voted almost with- 
out discussion to double its goal 
from one to two dollars per com- 
municant. "We can't do it (raise 
church support)," he said, "unless 
those of you on vestries or in a 
position of influence get them to 
put Sewanee in the budget." 
Warren Belser spoke of the 
annual visit by high school seniors 
from Birmingham started by Rich- 
ard Simmons ten years ago (see 
below). He urged all alumni within 
driving distance to consider similar 
projects. He pointed out that the 
support of admissions tied in very 
well in Birmingham with the 
Million Dollar Program, recalling a 
successful party featuring Dean 
Mary Sue Cushman and a panel of 
women students. Although very 
pleasant arrangements were made 
the cost was kept low. "Send the 
money you save to Sewanee,"

The Rev. Clyde L. Ireland 

The Rev. Clyde L. Ireland of 
Birmingham, Alabama, has joined 
the development staff of the Uni- 
versity of the South as director of 
church relations. 

A search to fill this key posi- 
tion has been underway for four 
years, since the first incumbent, 

the Very Rev. George M. Alexan- 
der, was elected Bishop of Upper 
South Carolina. 

A graduate of the University 
of South Carolina and the Virginia 
Theological Seminary, Mr. Ireland 
has served since 1970 as associate 
rector of St. Luke's Church in 

Sewanee's alumni take a back seat to those of no institution 
in the nation when it comes to pride in Alma Mater. They readily 
identify with the Mountain and with each other. They hold the 
traditions of excellence of the three divisions of the University of 
the South in high esteem. 

Yet, for reasons not fully understood, the percentage of Sewanee 
alumni making a gift in any one year has never been as high as those 
of institutions with which we compare ourselves. 

The Alumni Council of the Associated Alumni has determined 
to make the record match the facts: to generate a percentage of 
alumni giving which more accurately reflects the true feeling alumni 
have for Sewanee. 

We have accepted the goal of increasing the percentage of alumni 
giving by five per cent each year for five years. Efforts to meet these 
goals will be coordinated under the name of OPERATION: TASK 

George B. Elliott, President 

The Associated Alumni 

The University of the South 

Spring, 1976 

Vice-president for development 
William U. Whipple says, "I'm 
delighted to be able to confirm 
this appointment. It's an extremely 
important addition to the pro- 
fessional staff of the office of 
development. Mr. Ireland will be 
primarily responsible for increas- 
ing the awareness, understanding 
and support of the University 
among the congregations within the 
twenty-four owning dioceses." 

Mr. Ireland says he took the job 
"because it presents a challenge. 
Out of 1,800 parishes in the owning 
dioceses only 500 contribute to the 
University. I feel sure that when 
they know the facts they will all 
want to be part of the great educa- 
tional venture they founded. We 
can't go anywhere but up." 

Mr. Ireland was born in 1929 
in Columbia, South Carolina. Fol- 
lowing his ordination in 1955 he 
served churches in Laurens and 
Clinton, South Carolina, and was 
Episcopal chaplain to Presbyterian 
College in Clinton. In 1957 he 
became consultant in Christian 
education and youth for the Dio- 
cese of Upper South Carolina, 
planning youth programs for 
individual churches and for the 
diocese. He then became rector of 
the Church of the Redeemer in 
Greenville, South Carolina, which 
grew from 200 to 600 members 
during his nine years there. 


In 1970 he moved to St. Luke's 
in Birmingham, a large suburban 
parish where he shared in a group 
ministry. He participated in the 
pastoral, liturgical, and preaching 
ministry, with special interest in 
education, counseling, and youth 
programs. He developed a system 
of pastoral care through group 
counseling, established a regular 
schedule of study leave for church 
staff, and stimulated involvement 
of church members in training 
programs and Christian education. 
He served as multi-media consult- 
ant for Kanuga Christian education 
conferences in 1973 and 1974 and 
as co-director in 1975. 

The Irelands have four children, 
aged eight to fifteen, and liked the 
idea of moving to Sewanee after 
living in cities. Mr. Ireland sees his 
job as "creating more favorable 
feeling toward Sewanee and correct- 
ing some impressions. Before I was 
interviewed for the position, I 
thought Sewanee was sitting up 
here on a huge endowment with no 
financial problems. 1 found that the 
job existed because a great deal of 
regular gift income is necessary to 
keep the endowment from erosion 
and eventual disappearance. Sewa- 
nee has communicated that it 
provides a quality education but it 
hasn't communicated so well its 
financial needs."

Ask George Elliott of Birmingham, 
president of the Associated Alumni, 
what his favorite dessert is and he'll 
say "an extra gift to Sewanee." He 
serves up Sewanee as a table d'hote 
with single-minded dedication to 
turning around the mediocre record 
of alumni giving. 

"I just cannot understand why 
77 per cent of the alumni don't 
give," he says earnestly. "It seems 
to me completely irresponsible that 
they can come to this University 
and take from it an excellent edu- 
cation and not pay back any of 
their indebtedness to it. Even if 
you pay full tuition you only pay 
half what it costs. 

"I guess we have not done the 
necessary selling job, not motivated 
them adequately. We haven't made 
clear that the University needs 
them in order to remain a strong 
institution, with a degree that still 
means as much as theirs did when 
they got it." 

He expressed high hopes for the 
new (T)ASK FORCE, designed to 
raise the percentage of alumni con- 
tributors by five per cent each year 
for five years. "We will have class 
agents and sub-agents following up 
the solicitation of each alumnus by 
letter and by personal visits. I think 
that's what we have lacked most in 
the past. 

"I am convinced that most of 
those 77 per cent who don't give 
love Sewanee. We are all so covered 
up by solicitations, especially in the 
cities, where there are constant 
important drives for arts guilds, 
symphonies, local schools and 
whatever, that many just put the 
appeal from Sewanee aside think- 
ing, 'I'll mail it next week,' and 
there it stays— aside. If we can get 
someone to everyone on a personal 
visit asking for an immediate pledge, 
we are going to lick this embarrass- 
ing thing. 

"We have to face the fact that 
people are going to put oil on the 
wheel that squeaks the loudest." 

Even if one can't give very 
much money, George Elliott points 
out, there are many other things 
one can do. He mentioned bringing 
up prospective students, as mem- 
bers of the Sewanee Club of Bir- 
mingham do each year (see p. 11). 

"We don't like to associate our 
feelings about Sewanee with fund- 
raising," he said. "We like to think 
in terms of our shared memories, 
friendship and fellowship. We all 
hate to ask for money but that's 
how it's done. If you want to dance 
you have to pay the piper, to be 
homely about it. 

"Please make it clear, though, 
that the Associated Alumni are not 
entirely concerned with gift-giving. 
We are far more concerned with 
other areas— reunions, information, 
the continuance of Sewanee in all 

our lives and minds. We are com- 
mitting ourselves to what alumni 
can and ought to do to help Sewa- 
nee balance its budget, but that 
doesn't reduce the importance of 
the other concerns." 

Hard as it is to get George Elliott 
to talk about anything but Sewanee, 
we did glean a few facts about him, 
mostly from the alumni files. He 
comes by his preoccupation honest- 
ly, as he is a direct descendant of 
one of the University's founders, 
Bishop Stephen Elliott, and a fifth- 
generation Sewanee graduate. His 
great-grandfather, Dr. John Barnwell 
Elliott, was a professor in the old 
medical school as well as an alumnus. 

At that, young George's attend- 
ance here was not entirely unques- 
tioned. He even went to the Univer- 
sity of Virginia the summer before 
entering the College at Sewanee. 
"But my father said 'Go to Se- 
wanee,' and he was paying the bills." 

He went on, "I've always been 
glad. A state university swallows up 
people. At Sewanee you are still an 
individual. The student has a close

was paying the bills." 

that squeaks the loudest.' 

relationship with the faculty and 
the administration. I was an English 
major and so knew the English 
professors best— Abbo Martin, Dr. 
Harrison, Tudor Long." 

George Elliott was president of 
Phi Delta Theta, and is remembered 
by one contemporary as an indefati- 
gable partygoer. But he was a track 
letterman and O.D.K. 

After graduation he was an 
infantry lieutenant in the Korean 
War and went into printing and 
publishing sales work when he came 
out. In 1956 he joined the Strick- 
land Paper Company, of which he 
is now president. The company has 
five subsidiaries, including paper 
packaging and real estate. Primarily 
they are wholesalers and converters 
of printing and publishing papers. 
(A converter takes bulk paper stock 
from the mill and cuts, punches and 
otherwise adapts it to customers'

"We all took away an education 
from Sewanee," he says, reverting 
to his main current theme. "And I

The Million Dollar Program, with 
$888,186 under its belt toward the 
goal of $1,025,000 by July 1, was 
heartened in March by $50,000 
from an anonymous foundation in 
memory of G. Cecil Woods, A'17, 
C'21, of Chattanooga. 

The gift was unrestricted and 
credited to the MDP for funds appli- 
cable to the operating budget. 

"This is a singularly appropriate 
gift," Dr. J. Jefferson Bennett, 
Vice-Chancellor and President, com- 
mented. "Cecil Woods was involved 
in every campaign for the Univer- 
sity of the South during his adult 
life. As co-chairman and then chair- 
man, on the death of his brother 
Albert, of the Ten Million Dollar 
challenge to claim $2,500,000 from 
the Ford Foundation in 1962-65, 
he made possible much of the pres- 
ent physical plant of the University. 
The Million Dollar Program to pre- 
serve academic strength and the 
quality of student life would have 
equally engaged his energies." 

G. Cecil Woods (1900-1975), 
president and then chairman of the 
board of the Volunteer State Life 
Insurance Company of Chattanooga, 
was a philanthropist and civic 
leader in the region as well as a 
dedicated worker for the Univer- 
sity of the South. 

He was born in Shelbyville, 
Tennessee, and educated at the 
Sewanee Military Academy and the 
University of the South. In 1965 
the University conferred on him the 
degree of Doctor of Civil Law. In 
1967 he was elected to the board 
of regents after the ordinances 
were revised to allow the inclusion 
of non-Episcopalians (Mr. Woods 
was a deacon and elder of the 
Presbyterian Church). In another 
unprecedented action, the board 
elected him its chairman at the 
first meeting he attended. 

Art, Silver, Circuitry 
Among interesting gifts-in-kind 
have been a group of African art 
objects and photographs (at right) 
collected over the years by Charles 
D. Conway, C'22, of Winter Park, 
Florida and given to the University 
by him. 

A silver tea and coffee service 
was given by an anonymous donor 
to the Bishop's Common in mem- 
ory of Bishop Frank A. Juhan, 
C'll, T'll, who was "the Bishop" 
recalled in the name of the student 

Gerald Harper of Winston- 
Salem, father of Britton Harper, 
C'79, built a circuit for the compu- 
ter science department that shows 
computer output on an ordinary 
TV screen. Clay Ross, chairman of 
the department, says that they had 
obtained a diagram from a sales 
representative but that Mr. Harper 
worked out the details and built 
the circuit, a very valuable contri- 
bution. Dr. Ross has used it in 
several courses as a teaching device. 

An alumnus, James C. Clapp, 
C'59, of Poughkeepsie, New York, 
gave over a decade of back issues of 
computer journals valued at $914, 
effecting another substantial saving 
for the University. 


Recognizing that the dollar-per- 
communicant goal for church sup- 
port was established when the 
dollar was worth twice as much, 
the Diocese of Tennessee voted at 
its last convention to up its goal to 
two dollars per communicant. Ten- 
nessee, along with Central Gulf 
Coast and Alabama, is one of the 
only dioceses to have met or ex- 
ceeded its goal during the past 

The Exxon Education Founda- 
tion also has joined the doublers, 
offering two dollars in addition 
to every one dollar contributed 
by Exxon employees up to $2,000 
per year.

Art and anthropology depart-

Conway, a native of Osceola, 
Arkansas, went to Chattanooga 
after graduating from Sewanee. 
Having achieved football distinction 
as end, "Ping" Conway coached at 
McCallie School for two years. He 
earned a law degree at Chattanooga 
College of Law and went to Florida 
to make his fortune in the land 
boom of 1924-25. Having "lost my 
shirt," he returned to the practice 
of law, went to Wall Street in New 
York and from there joined General 
Motors Export Company. 

He traveled for GM for twelve 
years. While in France he met and 
married Madeleine Vincent and 
they have four children. After his 
travels in Europe and Africa for 
GM he left the company and be- 
came a distributor in San Juan, 
Puerto Rico for Chevrolet, Buick 
and Cadillac. He lived in Puerto 
Rico until his retirement, leaving 
his company, Caribe Motors, in 
the care of his sons. 

This is Conway's description of 
the history of the photographs: 

"The pictures of this album 
were taken by a Polish air force 
officer who had to flee his country 
or lose his life, at the time of a 
revolt in Poland. The only useful 
civilian trade he knew was photog- 
raphy. He lived in Brussels a few 
years, married an attractive Belgian 
girl. They came to what was then 
Leopoldville. During my visits 
there I got to know them and liked 
them. It was he who selected the 
album and placed the pictures in it. 

"Some of the pictures appeared 
in the New York Times Sunday - 
photogravure sections in the early 
1930s. The Times carried the story 
that the pictures were taken by a 
Captain St. Denis. I met Capt. St. 
Denis in Nairobi. He claimed to be 
and probably was an officer of the 
Belgian cavalry. He said his wife 
was a cousin of Franklin Roosevelt, 
also probably true. As an African 
explorer and big game hunter, 
however, the good Captain was 
prone to toot a rather loud horn, 
the notes of which in many 
instances were false. 

"I gave the album to a museum 
started by the General Motors 
Export Company. At the time they 
were most happy to have it. Later, 
for some reason, it was decided to 
discontinue the museum and I was 
asked if I wanted it returned to me, 
which I did with the thought of 
one day giving it to Sewanee." 

Seniors Assume Giving Role 

Allen Reddick,C76 

The class of 1976 has pioneered in 
an organized effort to assume 
alumni stewardship before leaving 
the Mountain. 

Allen Reddick, student trustee, 
put it together with a wine and 
cheese party in Convocation Hall 
April 19. He led off with a state- 
ment about the importance of 
annual giving, and shared his inten- 
tion of making a pledge before 

Dr. J. Jefferson Bennett, the 
Vice-Chancellor, explained why the 
Million Dollar Program is necessary. 
He told them that annual expendi- 
tures exceed income from endow- 
ment and tuition, that this is neces- 
sary to retain a first-rate faculty 
and an economically varied student 
body. Institutions like Sewanee are 
rare, he said, because of Sewanee's 
high quality and this quality is 
expensive. It requires the steady 
support of all its constituencies, 
among whom the alumni group is 
of utmost importance. 

Dr. Bennett reminded the 
seniors that even those who had 
paid full tuition had had half their 
education paid for by people other 
than themselves and their parents. 
John Bratton, executive direc- 
tor of the Associated Alumni, said 
that he was writing them all about 
the traditional roles of alumni and 
the ways in which the association 
and the University are prepared to 
help them. He was taking this 
opportunity, he said, to speak 
about what they can do for Sewa- 
nee. "1 went to school here for 
eight years," he said, "and had a 
free education. The treasurer could 
have given me a bill for $20,000 
marked 'paid in full,' but didn't. 
Every student who pays full tuition 
could be presented a bill noting 
half the amount paid by the Uni- 

He recalled his own early exper- 
iences to illustrate how the Se- 
wanee education had not only 

Billy Joe Shelton,C76 

greatly enhanced the quality of 
his life but had substantially in- 
creased his opportunities to earn a 
living, and he felt obligated to help 
see that the same opportunities 
continued to be offered to succeed- 
ing alumni. 

"I went to work on the Charles- 
ton waterfront," he said. "I started 
at the bottom and didn't need a 
Sewanee education for that. But 
after two years a private shipping 
company saw an opportunity for 
me. At that time I was the only one 
in the firm with a college education 
—of course that wouldn't be true 
now— and they put me to dealing 
with the public. I really felt that 
liberal arts background enabled me 
to do my job. It's amazing how it 
helps you cope with anything once 
you get going." 

He said that each one of the 
seniors would be able to make an 
entirely different assessment of 
what Sewanee would mean in his 
or her life, but surely all of them 
would find that it was well worth 

Billy Joe Shelton, speaker of 
the Delegate Assembly, wrote a 
letter to all his fellow seniors urging 
them to join him in committing 
themselves to pledges before leaving 

the Mountain. "Sewanee was for 
us— now we can show that we are 
for Sewanee," the popular student 
leader wrote. 

Commenting later on the meet- 
ing, Bratton said he thought the 
reactions of the sixty to seventy 
seniors present were almost entirely 
positive. "In my opinion the per- 
centage of our alumni giving to the 
University is as low as it is because 
we have not educated our alumni 
into the habit of annual giving. 
If we had started doing this a hun- 
dred years ago our percentage 
would be as high as Princeton's." 


by Thomas E. Doss III, C'76 

From his column "Over the Hill, " 

reprinted by permission from the Sewanee Purple 

Commencement is less than 
five weeks away. In less than five 
weeks, many of us will become 
alumni or alumnae. Accordingly, 
this week I would like to examine 
the responsibilities which each of us 
will have one day to this institution 
and those who follow us here. 

The primary responsibility 
which we have in life is to be good 
stewards of all the gifts which God 
has given to us. That means we 
must use our minds, talents, and 
abilities to the fullest. Those of us 
who have been able to travel to 
different parts of the world and 
enrich ourselves through different 
cultures and experiences must use 
the knowledge and insight we have 
gained to benefit others through 
every facet of our lives. Those of us 
who have had to struggle all our 
lives must use our achievements to 
bring hope and opportunity to 

To my mind, four years at Se- 
wanee is one of the greatest gifts 
that has been given to each of us. 

Some of you may question my use 
of the word "given" here, especially 
if you have a three- to five-thousand 
dollar debt facing you when you 
get out. I think my use is appropri- 
ate though, considering the well- 
known statistic that half of our 
yearly costs come from sources 
outside ourselves and/or our parents. 
Some of you may question the 
value of Sewanee as a gift. My opin- 
ion of Sewanee has changed in the 
four years I have been here. I hated 
this place my freshman year, and I 
would have transferred if I had 
known what I wanted to do and 
where I wanted to go. I was accept- 
ed for transfer at the end of my 
sophomore year and then I decided 
to stay here. For me, the Sewanee 
environment, the opportunities to 
share my life with others as a real 
community, and the chance to try 
to serve all of you in a leadership 
capacity offered me the kind of 
total educational experience that I 
expected when I came here. This 
school is far from perfect, but it 

has given me a good liberal arts 

So what do you and I "owe" 
Sewanee? At least five things. We 
must do what we can to ensure a 
continual flow of high-calibre stu- 
dents through here. We must do 
what we can to solicit contributions 
from others. As our lives progress, 
we must help Sewanee students and 
graduates as they try to find sum- 
mer or permanent jobs. We must 
contribute as we are able to this 
University. This means we who are 
seniors must start our giving next 
year, even if we can only give one 
dollar. In seeking outside grants, 
the percentage of alumni giving can 
often be more important than the 
amount given. So we must do our 
part monetarily. 

Finally, and most importantly, 
we must use the education we have 
received, both inside and outside 
the classroom, to the best advan- 
tage. We must use the talents devel- 
oped here to serve God and our 
brothers and sisters. 


Among honorary degree recipients 
at the University's 108th Com- 
mencement were Dr. Edward 
McCrady, former Vice-Chancellor 
and President, and alumni Peter 
O'Donnell, Jr., C'47, Robert Gallo- 
way Snowden, A'35, C'40, the Rev. 
John Paul Carter, GST'57, and the 
Rev. Ralph Jones Kendall, C'24, 

Dr. William Clyde Friday, presi- 
dent of the University of North 
Carolina, received the degree of 
Doctor of Civil Law in recognition 
of the twentieth year of his head- 
ship of the institution that has, 
among its other distinctions, 
awarded degrees to more than ten 
per cent of the University of the 
South faculty. 

The tradition of honoring 
Southern writers of particular note 
continued this year with the con- 
ferring of a degree of Doctor of 
Letters on Walker Percy, whose 
novel The Moviegoer won the 
National Institute of Arts and 
Letters Award in 1962. His more 
recent Love in the Ruins also won 
high critical acclaim. He is the 
nephew of William Alexander Percy, 
C'04, another novelist (he wrote 
Lanterns on the Levee with its 
lyrical chapter on Sewanee) and 
spent much of his early life at his 
uncle's Sewanee home, now the 
residence of Captain and Mrs. 
Wendell Kline. 

Newly elected bishops of 
Sewanee 's owning dioceses receiv- 
ing the degree of Doctor of Divinity 
were the Rt. Rev. James Barrow 
Brown of Louisiana, the Rt. Rev. 
Roger Howard Cilley, suffragan of

Dr. Edward McCrady was Vice- 
Chancellor and President of the 
University of the South from 1951 
to 1971, the period of the Univer- 
sity's history that saw its greatest 
growth in physical plant and endow- 
ment. He had been professor of 
biology here and senior biologist 
for the Atomic Energy Commission 
at Oak Ridge. Since leaving the 
vice-chancellorship he has been 
Brown Tutor and professor of 
biology at Sewanee and lecturer in 
biology at the College of Charles- 
ton, dividing the year between the 
two institutions. Before receiving 
Sewanee's D.C.L. he held honorary 
degrees from the College of Charles- 
ton, the University of Chattanooga, 
Southwestern University at Mem- 
phis and Concord College. 

Peter O'Donnell," Jr. of Dallas 
was Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Delta 
Theta at Sewanee, 1947 saluta- 
torian, and served the University as 
a trustee for nine years. He holds 
the M.B.A. from Wharton School 
of Finance. He is chairman of the 
board of the Dallas Museum, for- 
mer national chairman of the 
Republican Party for Texas, a 
director of the First National Bank 
of Dallas, a member of the board 
of trustees of Southern Methodist 
University and chairman of its 
investment committee. 

Robert G. Snowden is a former 
chairman of the board of regents, 
president of Wilkins and Snowden 
Development, Inc. of Memphis. At 
Sewanee he was a physics and 
mathematics major and president 
of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He served 
in the Marine Corps in the Pacific 
theatre during World War II, enter- 
ing in 1941 as a second lieutenant 
and being discharged five years 
later with the rank of lieutenant 

The Rev. Ralph Jones Kendall 
of Wetumpka, Alabama, a retired 
Episcopal priest and former trustee 
of the University, was secretary of 
the diocese of Alabama and for 
forty-three years rector of St. 
Stephen's, Eutaw. There his 
"middle-of-the-road" leadership in 
a largely black community has been 
in part credited for an orderly tran- 
sition to power of black officials 
in his county. 

The Rev. John Paul Carter is 
executive secretary of the National 
Association of Episcopal Schools. 
He has been engaged in far-reaching 
curriculum projects said to be 
ahead of the thinking of anyone 
else in the field. He holds the A.B. 
from William and Mary, B.D. from 
Virginia Seminary and S.T.M. from 
the University of the South.

"I am particularly interested in 
helping the Academy in the finan- 
cial area ... in structuring an appeal 
aimed at Academy alumni which 
will stimulate an improved response 
and give it direction to maximize 
the benefit to the Academy of each 
dollar given." Thus began a letter 
from Academy alumni governor 
R. Michael Harnett, A'62, of the 
Clemson University faculty, to 
alumni president It. Marshall Walter, 
A'58, which set the tone and action 
of the alumni board of governors 
meeting held at the Academy on 
April 24. 

After this letter was read to 
the alumni governors, a stimulating 
discussion ensued on the problems 
of alumni fund-raising at the prep 
school level and especially of the 
Academy as a division of the Uni- 
versity corporation, sharing in the 
common pool of the Million Dollar 
Program . 

William Whipple as vice-presi- 
dent for development explained 
that fund-raising aimed specifically 
at every need and project would be 
counter-productive. Where items 
are in the budget, however, gifts 
may be made to apply to them up 
to the total amount of the item. 
William D. Austin, A'46, C'52, 
asked if these appeals might be 
made under Academy auspices in 
support of the MDP but not always 
under the blanket appeal to alumni 
of all divisions. 

Robertson McDonald, A'46, 
C'50, former Academy alumni pres- 
ident, complimented the Academy 
on its academic excellence, citing 
a Vanderbilt professor who had 
told him that our graduates were 
quite well prepared and were articu- 
late in their speaking and writing. 

From the discussion and testi- 
mony came the following resolution 
offered by governor Austin, which 
was approved: 

Resolved that the Board of Gover- 
nors of the Sewanee Academy 
Alumni Association after extensive 
study of the subject unanimously 
goes on record as supporting the 
Million Dollar Program as eminent- 
ly fair and endorses the proposal 
that the Sewanee Academy should 
have continuing fund drives direct- 
ed to Academy alumni under Sewa- 
nee Academy auspices and/or class 
agents in support of specific budget- 
related items. 

Further, that the Alumni Board of 
Governors approves the present 
academic and athletic programs as 
administered by the headmaster 
and staff. 

Headmaster Hutson thanked 
the board for the resolution, saying 
that it expressed both the support 
of the alumni leadership and of 
the role of alumni in MDP fund- 
raising, thus giving much potential 
strength to the Academy. 

On returning home, William 
Austin wrote the alumni director, 
". . . without a doubt, the gover- 
nors' meeting was the most pro- 
ductive I have attended to date."

Whatever happened to the cocktails 
and sit-down dinner with the 
speaker from the Mountain at the 
fancy yacht club? It almost doesn't 
happen that way any more. In 
Charleston, for example, the setting 
was wine and cheese in a beautiful- 
ly renovated old mansion on a 
Sunday afternoon with a young 
faculty member speaking. Dr. 
Frank Middleton, C'62, is presi- 
dent. It was the same format in 
Columbia with Dr. Edwin Stirling 
the next evening, in the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. William H. Duncan, 
parents of a current student. 

Reasons for the shift range 
from a drift away from formality 
to lower costs with no racial restric- 
tions. On the positive side, some- 
thing special is being accomplished. 
Dr. Stirling made his third appear- 
ance in Nashville; and instead of 
rehashing student life styles, he 
spoke about the Alumni Summer 
College, which is something brand 
new and significant in alumni 
offerings at Sewanee. 

Three wine and cheese parties 
in one year for the first time? Yes, 
but the idea came not from the 
alumni office but from alumni who 
know what is attractive in their 
communities. And these are the 
days of wine and cheeses. 

Often a pace setter in alumni 
activities, Birmingham last year 
offered Dean Mary Sue Cushman 

and a panel of women students 
representing each class to interpret 
the role of women at Sewanee. 
What happened in an informal 
setting? Good food and brew were 
well consumed, and the needling 
male chauvinists were put to rout 
by the wittier coeds. 

New Sewanee Clubs have seized 
the initiative in imaginative plan- 
ning. In Shreveport, the alumni 
director was asked why Ark-La-Tex 
(local designation for the greater 
area) needs another club. Answer: 

It doesn't, unless you design it for 
enjoyment and accomplishment. 
Result: a delightful summer picnic 
at Frierson Plantation hosted by 
Ivy Hedgecock Frierson, C'74, and 
husband Archie. 

Chattanooga's is not a new club 
but one which hasn't met since who 
can remember. So Ned Boehm, C'69, 
incoming club president, thought 
about the Gazebo restaurant's hap- 
py hour with fancy hors d'oeuvres. 
The Sewanee Club of Chattanooga 
was revitalized. 


Robert P. Radcliffe, C'61, delivered 
the address at the Fijis' Frank 
Norris Pig Dinner. Radcliffe is a 
former Archon Councillor for the 
national Phi Gamma Delta and 
more recently Archon Secretary. 
For innovation would you believe a 
party weekend Easter bottle hunt, 
with miniatures laid by bunny Reg 
Helvenston, C'22, on the spacious 
grounds of the Cloister, the beauti- 
ful St. Mary's bluff-site home of 
Reg and Nina? Fifty Fijis and wives 
found the hidden miniatures. 

Probably more SAEs since the 
days of unlimited pledges gathered 
around the Lion, whose mane is 
currently gold, for a reunion week- 
end packed with activity. Sixty 
alumni and wives were on hand for 
fun, meetings, initiation of pledges, 

a banquet, fraternity house recep- 
tion, and service in All Saints' with 
Bishop Hunley Elebash, C'44, 

Other fraternities are bound not 
to be outdone. Looking forward to 
their 100th year in 1977, Sewanee's 
ATOs had a pre-centennial in 1973. 
Planning which began then will 
come to fruition with a grand cele- 
bration at Alumni Homecoming. 
And speaking of Homecoming 
1976— what was once a packed- 
dorm alumni housing at Commence- 
ment is now a festival of fall colors 
and football. With plans already 
jelling for the golden anniversary of 
the class of 1926 and many other 
yearmarks as well, October 15-16 
promises to be the biggest and best 
Homecoming ever.

The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

the group included representatives 
from Berry, Vestavia and Mountain 
Brook High Schools and the Alta- 
mont School. They made the trip 
by Greyhound bus. 

Current students in the College 
from Birmingham took the visitors 
in groups of four or five on tours 
of the main campus buildings and 
dormitories. The tours were ar- 
ranged so that the juniors could 
spend extra time in departments 
of their specific interests— forestry, 
chemistry, or whatever. 

All had lunch in the Bishop's 
Common pub, "Tiger Bay." Assort- 
ed professors, coaches, senior pre- 
med and pre-law students as well as 
the College students from Birming- 
ham joined the high school group 
to advise them and answer ques- 
tions about the University. A bus 
tour of the domain came next, 
and the visitors returned home 
without having to spend the night

ham has been bringing groups like

Alumni, do you remember the beauty of 
redbud and dogwood in front of Gorgas Hall in the 
spring? Nine alums who shared vernal rites with us 
are Marshall Walter of Roswell, Georgia; Robertson 
McDonald, Nashville; William Austin, Jacksonville, 
Florida; the Rev. Frederick Gough, Clinton, North 
Carolina; John Spence, Memphis; J. C. Brown 
Burch, Memphis; Brooke Dickson, New Orleans; 
Joe Gardner, Houston; George Wood, Louisville; 
and Michael Harnett, Clemson, South Carolina. As 
members of the Academy's board of governors 
they visited the campus for the annual meeting in 
late April. 

During an evening of reminiscing at Rebel's 
Rest, John Spence, A'35, recalled that the Acad- 
emy had a total of ninety-six students the year he 
graduated, while Fred Gough, A'58, belonged to 
one of the largest graduating classes, with sixty-five 
members. Both hoped to see the present enroll- 
ment figure of 200 increased at a moderate rate 
and pledged to help with recruiting in their respec- 
tive cities. 

President of the Academy board Marshall 
Walter stressed the importance of alumni giving 
and the need to broaden the Academy's base of 
support. The meeting Saturday moming focused 
on benefits to the Academy and the role of alumni 
volunteers in the Million Dollar Program. 

As I write, my view is of the oak and tulip trees 
opening to the vivid sunlight of an April day. 
There's an at-home baseball game to watch this 
afternoon. The junior class will be selling popcorn 
and cokes to augment their funds for the gradua- 
tion band. Life can be tranquil on a grassy embank- 
ment shaded from the hot sun by old trees. 

Succumbing to spring fever is a short-lived 
luxury, however, for the yearbook deadlines have 
to be met and finals loom on the horizon as we 
approach the last four weeks of school. 

There are fifty-seven members in the senior 
class, and they will fan out to colleges from M.I.T. 
in the East, to Duke, Georgia Tech and the Univer- 
sity of the South. 

We watch these new alumni depart, anticipat- 
ing the experiences to come. Will they remember 
their Academy years, the preparation upon which 
so much of their future success is founded? 

Now beginning its 109th year, the Academy 
wishes all its graduates would take the time to 


Class of 1926 chairman Coleman 
Harwell was presented the Hall 
Trophy at the Alumni Council 
dinner April 2 by O. Morgan Hall, 
C'39, trophy donor and former 
Associated Alumni president. 
The trophy is given each year to 
the class making the outstanding 
contribution to the University 
in terms of giving percentage and 
amount of contributions. 

Already the class of 1926, 
under the leadership of Mr. Harwell 

and George Barker, who was elect- 
ed president of the class in the 
senior year, are laying plans for the 
fiftieth reunion at Alumni Home- 
coming, which will include the 
usual Saturday evening festivities 
and dinner. 

Other alumni presidents recog- 
nized at the Council were Stanyarne

Registrations for the first Sewanee 
Alumni Summer College, Periscope 
'76, are coming in at a gratifying 
rate, Dr. Edwin Stirling reports. 
Stirling, C'62, assistant professor 
of English, is director of the pro- 
gram scheduled for July 11-17. 
There are still a number of vacan- 
cies at this writing. 

A prospectus has gone to all 
alumni, but enrollment is not 
limited to them and you might 
wish to share the opportunity with 
friends. One faculty couple has 
presented a registration as a gift 
to a relative. 

The inclusion of Gorley Putt 
from Christ's College, Cambridge, 
will give Periscope participants a 
chance to share in the Brown 
Tutorship, a foundation grant 
which brings high-powered scholars 
to teach individuals and small 
seminars. Dr. Stirling says Putt 
has written one of the two or 
three best books on Henry James. 
He will offer "An Englishman's 
View of American Literature." 

Dr. Anita Goodstein, recent 
winner of a Bicentennial essay 
prize, will discuss the American 
Revolution in the light of develop- 
ing historical techniques. Political 
scientist Claud Sutcliffe will intro- 
duce Middle Eastern politics and 
will be open to questions about 
the hot-on-the-griddle presidential 
races. Gerald Smith will look at 
religion in the South from his 
view as comparative religionist 
and will lead long walks wearing 
his hat as Sewanee outdoorsman. 
Waring McCrady will bring sights 
on the culture of France and its 
impact on all of us. Edward 
Carlos will offer a practical short 
course on the art and technique 
of photography. Francis X. Hart 
will guide a scanning of the heavens. 
Dr. Edwin Stirling will direct 
readings in recent American poetry 
and even consider why leading 
poets have committed suicide.

"Sewanee, July 4th 1976" by 
Alfred Bartles and "Sewanee Festi- 
val Overture 1976" by Wilfred 
Lehmann, composed in honor of 
the nation's 200th birthday and the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center's 
twentieth, will be given their world 
premiere performances in July by 
the center's Sewanee Symphony 
Orchestra in Guerry Hall. Mr. 
Bartles' composition will be played 
on July 4 and Mr. Lehmann's on 
July 25. 

A member of the music faculty 
at Tennessee Technological Univer- 
sity at Cookeville, Alfred Bartles is 
a cellist in the Nashville Symphony 
and has recently taught at Schiller 
College in Bonnigheim, West Ger- 
many. He has played in the St. 
Louis Symphony, Mantovani Or- 
chestra, New York City Ballet and 
Orchestra U. S. A. One of his popu- 
lar songs, "Come Ride the Wind 
with Me," was recorded by Johnny 
Mathis, while the Nashville Sym- 
phony recently commissioned his 
"Music for Symphony Orchestra 
and Jazz Ensemble." Two earlier 
works, "Piano Quartet" and "Wood- 
wind Quintet," have been perform- 
ed previously by the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center, where Mr. 
Bartles has taught since 1968. 
Many Sewaneeans are acquainted 

with him as the nephew of Miss 
Isabel Howell, retired University 

Mr. Bartles' composition will be 
conducted by Henri Temianka, 
conductor of the Chamber Orches- 
tra of California and former virtu-

Alumni of all three University

Seminary— will be included in a

Dy l\iorman Ervin, C'76 

In the spring a Sewanee ath- 
lete's mind may often turn to 
thoughts of Party Weekend, 
summer plans, or, for the 
grizzled veterans, to the in- 
creasing fear of approaching 
comprehensives. With all of these 
worries, who can complain if an 
easy pop-up is dropped in the 
outfield, or if one of the Tigers' 
better tennis players neglects to 
remove his warm-up pants before 
dominating his opponent 6-0, 

Even in the face of repeated 
defeat, most of the participants 
still show a competitive spirit. 
There has been a frequently 
fierce rivalry between the base- 
ball and lacrosse teams to see 
who will win the first game. But 
through three-quarters of their 
respective seasons, neither team 
has stepped forward to claim a 
victory. It seems at times that 
the "First Victory" award is 
about as popular as a blind date 
whose best advance review is that 
"she has a good personality." 

The men's and women's 
tennis teams have both had 
commendable seasons, however. 
The excellent performance by 
several freshmen, combined with 
consistent winning by upperclass- 
men, has taken both teams to 
victories over impressive oppo- 
nents and to winning seasons. 
The tennis teams and the golf 
team are optimistic about their 
performance in the College Ath- 
letic Conference tournament, 
which will be held at South- 
western in Memphis this year. 

The track team has also bene- 
fited from outstanding perform- 
ance by freshmen. This is 
especially noticeable in the track 
events, but the newcomers have 
made their presence known in 
the field events as well. Balanced 
scoring has helped the team to 
several victories, and gives hope 
for a good showing in the CAC 

Among the best (left to right): Richard Wood, Pierre 
Rogers, Scott Ferguson, Joe DeLozier 

The baseball team has been 
greatly hampered by injuries to 
several players. After returning 
to the Mountain from a spring 
break trip to Florida, the team 
has been struck by one injury 
after another. This has caused 
several of the scheduled double- 
headers to be reduced to single 
games, or canceled altogether. 
On more than one occasion, a 
young man started the afternoon 
as a spectator in the bleachers 
and finished it as a member of 
the team on the field. This re- 
cruiting from the stands has 
worked very well, and several of 
the current starters were con- 
vinced to play in this manner. 


In the Division III intercollegiate 
swimming and diving champion- 
ships held at Washington and Jeffer- 
son College in Washington, Pennsyl- 
vania March 18-20, five swimmers 
from Sewanee finished sixteenth 
out of sixty-two schools competing. 
This is the highest a team of any 
sport at Sewanee has ever placed in 
a NCAA championship, according 
to the Sewanee Splash. The Tiger 
swimmers totaled 34 points and 
brought home two ail-Americans in 
two events each— Scott Ferguson 
and Bill Keeler. Ferguson swam to 
sixth place in the 100 and eighth in 
the 200 butterfly events. His time 
was 53.479 for the 100 and 
2:00.488 for the 200. His prelimi- 
nary time of 53.100 and his final 
time for the 200 were new school 
records. Bill Keeler scored sixth 

Coulson Studio 

in the 100 and fourth in the 200 
backstroke events. His time for the 
100 was 56.733 and for the 200, 
2:02.388. The medley relay team 
of Keeler, Rogers, Ferguson and 
Wood finished in fourteenth place, 
their time 3:45.388. The freestyle 
relay team consisting of Wood, 
Milligan, Ferguson and Keeler 
swam into fifteenth place. Their 
time was 3:19.8, which was also 
a new school record. 

The swimmers finished the 
regular season with a 4 win, 3 loss 
record, losing to three Division I 
teams— Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt 
and Louisville. Lack of depth and 
no diver for the last meet are men- 
tioned as the drawbacks in the 
team's most successful season for 
national recognition.

NCAA Graduate Scholar 
Harry Hoffman, a 6'4" senior 
forward from Nashville, is the 
ninth Sewanee student to be award- 
ed an NCAA scholar-athlete post- 
graduate scholarship. He was one of 
fifteen basketball players chosen 
from all NCAA member schools. 

Hoffman has been co-captain of 
the Sewanee basketball team for 
the past two years, and scored more 
than 1,000 points in his Sewanee 
career. His consistent scoring and 
play-making have helped lead the 
Tigers to two consecutive CAC 
championships and post-season 
tournament invitations. 

The NCAA scholarships are 
awarded each year to students who 
have distinguished themselves in 
both academic and athletic achieve- 
ments. With his selection, Sewanee 
stands ninth in the nation in total 
NCAA scholarships won, tied with 
Oklahoma, Penn State, the Naval 
Academy, California at Berkeley, 
and Luther College. In Division III 
Sewanee is tied with Luther College 
for second, topped only by Caltech. 
When enrollment of the leading 
institutions is fed into the compari- 
son, Sewanee is tied for second in 
'he nation in all divisions.

This has been a disappointing sea- 
son for the Academy baseball team. 
Injuries and inexperience have been 
disastrous for the Tigers. Currently, 
we are 0-10 with six games remain- 

The season's record does not 
reflect the effort our boys have put 
out for the team. Seniors John 
Patton, Eric Baker and Chip Carrier 
have been the steady players this 
year. Inexperienced players such as 
Archie Baker, Jim Taylor, John 
Barbre and Phil Sullivan have 
gained valuable experience and they 
are playing well. Jimbo Hill, Bob 
Lovett, Britt Brantley, Mark Stew- 
art and Keith Clay are starters who 
have made strong contributions to 
the team. 

Although the season has been 
long and tough, spirits are high and 
we expect to finish strong. 

—Dale Morton 
(Baseball Coach) 


The Academy opened the 1976 
golf season with a veteran squad 
and a representative schedule. 
Three members returned from the 
1975 team which posted a 22-7 
record and placed sixth in the Dis- 
trict Eight tournament. 

Neal Brown, who qualified for 
the regional playoffs, John Dixon 
and Tom Ham are all returning 
seniors, and with the addition of 
junior Marc Sanderson, who came 
from Jonesboro, Arkansas with 
tournament experience, make up 
the core of the team. Bud Benning 
is a returning junior who has pro- 
vided valuable assistance. Three 
newcomers to the team, sophomore 
Chris Cassidy and Chris Cook plus 
freshman Ken Fritsch, have filled in 
ably and will be the backbone of 
the golf team in future years. 

With two weeks remaining in 
the regular schedule the Tigers have 
posted a 13-2 record. Both losses 
have been by small margins to 
strong teams. The District Eight 
tournament will be held at the 
Riverbend Country Club in Shelby- 
ville on May 11. The team is look- 
ing to improve last year's finish and 
advance all the way to the regionals. 
—Peyton Cook

The tennis teams are currently in a 
"building" year. Only two of the 
top six boys are returnees because 
of the high percentage of seniors 
on last year's team. Graduation 
did even more damage to the girls' 
team— six of the top eight gradu- 
ated. The other two fell victim to a 
broken ankle and TSSAA eligibility 

With only two experienced play- 
ers on the boys' team the season 
has been a difficult one with the 
Academy winning only one match. 
The girls' team has been unable 
to play any matches because only 
two girls are eligible and uninjured. 
The girls are playing exhibition 
matches and are planning to play in 
the District Eight tournament in 

Varsity boy players include 
James Peck, David Cook, Charles 
Sharp, Whit Irvin, Carl Wenzel, 
Melvin Lane, Scott Ruleman, Eban 
Goodstein, Art Cockett and William 
Cocke. The girls who will play in 
the District Eight tournament will 
be Mary Pope Hutson and Anne 

Next year holds more promise 
because of the experience being 
gained by this year's players, and 
because of the improved clay sur- 
face on the old Academy courts 
which are being reworked this

to 1945, and for 12 years was rec- 
tor of St. John's in Montgomery. 
He resigned in 1956 to pursue 
graduate studies in England, and in 
1960 received the B. Litt. from 

He came to Sewanee in 1960 as 
cting chaplain and teacher of 
religion. In 1961 he became head of 
the department, a position he held 
until 1973 when his health caused 
him to go on leave of absence. He 

a trustee of the University from 
1952 to 1954. 

He is survived by his wife, Jean 
Wright Brettmann, a daughter, Mrs.

Florida, and three grandchildren. 


Jay Blair Ernest, teacher of math 
and history for over twenty-five 
years at the Sewanee Military Acad- 
emy, died in Avon Park, Florida 
on February 21, 1976. A native of 
Mifflintown, Pennsylvania, he came 
to SMA in September, 1919, after 
a tour in the U. S. Navy that 
followed graduation from Gettys- 
burg College. He left the Academy 
in June of 1921 to work for the 
York Construction Company in 
York, Pennsylvania, and then was 
employed for ten years by the In- 
ternal Revenue Service. 

He returned to the Mountain 
in September of 1936, serving until 
1961 as a teacher, and as assistant 
commandant under Col. Hayne 
Shumate. Bill, as he was known to 
his friends and colleagues, coached 
some football and baseball, as 
well as golf. His golf team of 1951 
won the Southern Championship, 
a feat that has not been repeated. 

Something of a gourmet cook 
in the backwoods sense, Bill kept 
a pot of squirrel or rabbit stew 
simmering on the back of his stove. 
That aroma attracted many boys to 
his room in Ambler Hall where he 
served as faculty resident in the 
barracks of the SMA band. 

Burial was in Mifflintown.

and grandfather and became chancellor 
1961-71. He instituted many educational 
innovations and was called "the King 
Arthur of UT's intellectual Camelot 
during the heady 1960s." His greatest 
fame, however, came from bringing into 
being the Humanities Research Center 
which bears his name and with great 
skill acquiring a vast collection of rare 
books and papers for it, arousing the 
admiration and envy of the world's 
bibliophiles. The collection has been 
valued at $50,000,000, $30,000,000 of 
which came from gifts by alumni and the 
rest through Dr. Ransom's persuasiveness 
with the legislature. At the time of his

Respond to Vice-Chancellor 

March 24, 1976 
Immediately I must thank you for 
your convocation address on page one of 
the latest Sewanee News. Thanks for 
your unequivocal and encouraging state- 
ment of the purpose of a Sewanee 
education, and thanks for fine quotation 
from William Johnson Cory. 

(Rev.) Robert B. Dunbar, T'66 

Canon to the Ordinary 

Diocese of Upper South Carolina 

Your March issue of the Sewanee 
Wems is before me and having read your 
article, "Ladies and Gentlemen the 

-Chancellor," I cannot refrain from 
adding a few Dutch syllables. 

After one has gotten through all of 
the discussion of the relevance of today's 
society and the comparison between 

me earnings of those who have 
attended universities of learning and 
hose who have attended vocational 
chools, there is still one factor which I 
think ought to be added. 

In reflecting on my educational years 
; Gilman Country School for backward 
boys, at Princeton and at Oxford, I am 
not altogether sure whether I could 
pinpoint the subject matter and the 
individuals involved in "An Introductory 
Course to Philosophy" nor could I 
translate probably with any great gusto 
Caesar and Cicero as well as Virgil, but 

ngst my souvenirs and arriving at an 

advanced age, I do deeply appreciate 

what all those things have added and 

made possible "the art of living with 

's self." 

You and I would concur that educa- 

is not for the purpose of deriving 
letary returns but for the artful 

ness of being able to live with one's 
self with some sort of satisfaction. For 
all the corridors and avenues and 
?yards to which previous education 

exposed me, I am deeply grateful 
for having them to ramble down as I 
look at yesterday's roses. All of this I 
suspect can be best expressed as you did 
your address: "the emergence of 
f-knowledge." Without it, life 
could be a rather dreary, dismal 
journey's end. _

With Gifts 

The author of your "The Other Half 
—Who Pays It?" folder certainly knew 
how to get through to this mule-headed 
reprobate. As I was reading the folder 
this morning the circumstances behind 
my second year at Sewanee came back 
to me with a real thud. I had been out of 
school working all the previous year due 
to a near-disaster to our family finances. 
When the fall of 1948 approached, the 
money for tuition at Sewanee just was 
not available, in spite of all my efforts. 
Somewhere in Sewanee's files there is 
a record which shows that one Paul W. 
Davis, Jr. of Lexington, Kentucky was 
granted a half-tuition scholarship for the 
1948-49 school year, and did indeed 
attend Sewanee during that, his sopho- 
more year. I am sure that you can 
imagine what a turn my thoughts took 
as I contemplated your theme, "The 
Other Half— Who Pays It?" while the 
first morning light crept into my window. 

My compliments on your folder. 
It has a real impact— this letter is testi- 
mony to that. Please keep in touch. 

Paul W. Davis, Jr., C'51 

Hickory, North Carolina 

Though new experiences and new 
friends from Sewanee broadened my 
visions of the world, truly it has been the 
words and thoughts from the men and 
women of learning both past and present 
which have given to me a new richness 
and meaning of life— a meaning which to 
me makes man's existence as a "social 
solitary" that much more complete. It is 
this kind of meaning which I feel could 
make our crazy world a bit more sane if 
more people were given a chance to 
learn. I feel that my classmates and I, 
having received numerous requests from 
the University for gifts, desire to give, but 
we find it more and more difficult to 
support ourselves in this rip-off world, 
much less our own Alma Mater. Well, 
I guess you know all of this and it's . 
your job to keep pounding away at us — 
don't give up. I hope we all pull through. 

David Cordts,C75

I wish that the gift could be larger 
... I am sure that many others say the 
same. In some small way, this gift might 
help others to have the same kind of 
experience I had at Sewanee. I pledge to 
continue giving and I hope to increase 
it over the next few years. Good luck 
for another million in 1976!

Since I finally finished my formal 
education (August 197&) and I'm now 
gainfully employed, I am able to give a 
donation to the University of the South. 
In the last few years, I fully realized 
Sewanee's excellence, I hope it retains 
its excellence, so others may also benefit.

Miss Lonny Inge Landrum and her sister 
Miss Annie Burke Landrum were the 
sisters of Casjmir Alonzo Landrum, Jr., 
who entered Sewanee in 1906, along with 
Alexander Guerry and Kemper Williams. 
The ladies were long-time residents of the 
100 block of West Gadsden Street in 
Pensacola, Florida, and it is my notion 
that they were parishioners of a series of 
Sewanee rectors and assistants at Christ 
Church, Pensacola. Miss Lonny held a 
B.S. degree (1911) from the Florida State 
College for Women. One or both of the 
ladies were in federal civil service, I 

Further details may be obtained 
from their niece (great-niece?) Mrs. 
Manning M. Pattillo, Jr., whose address 
is her husband's in the alumni Kardex. 

Before we say we know nothing 
about our benefactors, I suggest we look 
at the alumni biographical files and 
consult persons who just might know the

I think your "news" media should 
have more about sports program. It's 
95 per cent other things. Many of us are 
still interested in the athletic activity. 
Even suggest some "S" Club alumni 
activity to help with the program.

March 29, 1976 
Provost : 

Please permit me to share with you 
the pleasure of our visiting the University 
campus this past Sunday. 

The day being unusually clear and 
beautiful, my wife and I flew to Sewanee 
from our home here in Cookeville. It 
was the first time we had visited the cam- 
pus in more than twenty years. We were 
impressed with both the Gothic beauty 
of the campus and the hospitality of the 
people with whom we were to come into 

As we walked from the airport, 
Officer Barry offered us a ride in the 
police cruiser. Using the excuse that he 
had to "make his rounds" anyway, he 
gave us a VIP tour of the grounds, explain- 
ing the significance of the various build- 
ings and residences with obvious pride. 

Next, we met a Miss Leah Lowe, 
whose father is a member of the faculty. 
She explained the origin of the flowering 
garden ravine down behind the gym- 
nasium, and led us along the path through 
the jasmine, apple and azalea blossoms. 

After dining at the Sewanee Inn, we 
were again given a ride back to the airport 
by another of your townspeople. 

Our visit was a delight. A lovely 
tribute to the University and the com-

In March of 1972, I submitted to you my 
first development report outlining our vitally 
important financial needs and the program for 
meeting them. That report was submitted at a 
time when Sewanee was facing some rather 
severe financial problems that demanded a solu- 
tion if she was to continue to be a center of 
excellence. That report was presented in an 
attitude of cautious optimism based on faith in 
ian and faith in Almighty God. It was also 
written with a deep sense of urgency and

"»anee, Tennessee 37375 

At that time I promised to devote myself 
intensively toward soliciting the necessary in- 
crease in gifts and to encourage the efforts of 
my colleagues to that end. The members of the 
board of trustees and the board of regents 
committed themselves to leadership in the plan. 
We pledged redoubled efforts toward identify- 
ing, recruiting and supporting the highest quality 
of volunteer leadership so necessary in securing 
increased gifts. We knew that we simply had to 
strengthen the Million Dollar Program, our most 
promising source of unrestricted gift income, 
and it was designated as our first priority in the 
development program. 

Let us now render an account of our success 
in securing unrestricted gift income over the 
past five years. Our results are as follows: 


Gifts Bequests 

$ 533,395 $205,099 

$ 588,198 $ 45,493 

$ 592,219 $113,080 

$ 736,034 $153,910

(Figures adjusted to change 


$ 738,494 
$ 633,691 
$ 705,299 
$ 889,944 
in fiscal year) 

I know that you all rejoice with my col- 
leagues on the Mountain when you see the 
dramatic increase in unrestricted gifts over the 
past five years. The official University prayer 
for "... a never-failing succession of benefac- 
tors . . ." has been answered in a marvelous way. 

The 1975-76 Million Dollar Program for 
annual unrestricted giving ended its year with a 
total of $1,075,814— the largest amount ever 
achieved! In addition, restricted gifts and be- 
quests, earmarked for specific University pur- 
poses, amounted to $910,562, making a total 
gift income for the year of $1,986,376. 

There are indeed a number of things for 
which we can all be deeply grateful. One of the 
most significant of these has been the wonderful 
service and leadership given by Mr. Robert M. 
Ayres, Jr., as he completed his second successful 

year as volunteer national chairman of the 
Million Dollar Program. Other things for which 
we may be thankful are: 

1) Thirteen members of the Chancellor's 
Society who contributed $10,000 or more in 
unrestricted gifts. 

2) More alumni gifts this year than ever 

3) A significant increase in the number of 
members in the Century Club, those individuals 
giving a minimum of $100. 

4) Church Support totaling $243,128, an 
increase over last year's total of ten per cent. 

5) The heartening fact that the highest per- 
centage of giving by any group was achieved by 
the faculty and staff, 75 per cent of whom gave 
to the Million Dollar Program. 

6) The increased involvement on the part of 
the University's governing bodies. The individual 
members of the 140-member board of trustees 
representing the twenty-four owning dioceses, 
and its executive arm, the fourteen-member 
board of regents, have shown more than ever 
before an awareness of the need to participate 
in development work. Their support and leader- 
ship have been essential. 

We are facing a new and stimulating chal- 
lenge in the 1976-77 fiscal year. With a record 
high operating budget of $11,199,320, it is 
necessary that we raise a minimum of 
$1,134,000 in unrestricted gifts in order to 
ensure another balanced budget.

Address to the Trustees, April 1975 


Marshall McLuhan and Operation: 
Task Force— the plan to increase 
College alumni giving adopted by 
the Alumni Council last spring- 
agree. The medium is the message. 

Relying heavily on people-to- 
people techniques, Operation: Task 
Force will demonstrate the validity 
of the Sewanee experience by both 
the number of alumni involved and 
the seriousness of their concern. 

Stated another way, the college 
whose alumni were not equipped 
by their college experience to in- 
sure its survival will not survive, 
the Task Force organizers are 

The new plan, which empha- 
sizes the "ask" in "Task," and 
which grew out of alumni impa- 
tience with uncharacteristically low 
percentages of alumni participation 
in Sewanee 's annual giving, is 
designed to increase the record of 
College classes by five percentage 
points each year for five successive 
years. The current average class 
record is less than 25 per cent. 

Since it is generally conceded 
that Sewanee's low percentage 
record reflects a failure of the 
message to get through to the alum- 
ni and not an overt negative deci- 
sion by them, alumni leaders have 
determined to recruit enough 
alumni to become the message. 
"The new plan keys on one 
person, the class agent, to direct 
the class Task Force," said Albert 
Roberts III, C'50, of Tampa, vice- 
president for classes of the Associ- 
ated Alumni. "The agent will 
recruit as many sub-agents as are 
necessary to spread the word: to 
get the job done." 

"The job," continued Roberts, 
"is really to get across the import- 
ance of annual and unrestricted 
gift support from our alumni. With 
foundations and corporations using 
percentage of alumni giving as a 
selection device for the awarding of 
grants, alumni can no longer assume 
that their gifts are insignificant— 
however small some may have to 

Roberts has directed that the 
new Manual for Class Agents be 
delivered in person to as many of 
the class agents he has recruited as 
possible. John Bratton and Mark 
Oliver, directors of alumni affairs 
and annual giving, made the deliv- 
eries and gave personal orientations 
on Operation: Task Force during 
July and August. 

Bishop Browning 


The Rt. Rev. John S. Spong, 
GST'56, was consecrated Bishop 
Coadjutor of the Diocese of New- 
ark June 12, thus becoming the 
sixty-fifth bishop to have studied 
at the University of the South. 

Born in 1931, he is a Phi Beta 
Kappa graduate of the University 
of North Carolina. He received his 
M.Div. degree from Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary and has taken 
post-graduate work at the Yale 
Divinity School as well as Sewanee's 
School of Theology. He has served 
churches in North Carolina, South- 
western Virginia and Virginia. 

He has written a number of 
articles and three books published 
by Seabury Press: Honest Prayer, 
This Hebrew Lord, and (with Jack 
Daniel Spiro) Dialogue: In Search 
of Jewish-Christian Understanding. 
His latest book, Christpower, was 
published by Thomas Hale Com- 

He has edited the North Caro- 
lina Churchman, lectured- on 
television stations in Virginia, and 
worked as a play-by-play sports 
announcer for radio stations in 
Tarboro and Lynchburg. 

Some controversy followed his 
election when seventy Episcopal 
priests and laymen, in an open 
letter to the bishops and standing 
committees charged with his con- 
firmation, questioned his ortho- 
doxy as expressed in one of his 
books, This Hebrew Lord. Bishop 
Spong explained the statements to 
the apparent satisfaction of the

of regents. 

Academy Honors 


For the second time Miller Puckette, 
just graduated from the Academy, 
competed for the United States 
in the International Mathematics 
Olympiad, held this year in Linz, 
Austria. He was one of eight high 
school students making up the 
team, which came in third, after 
Russia and Great Britain. Seventeen 
nations were represented in the 
competition, consisting of an exam- 
ination to test both breadth of 
knowledge and mathematical 
ingenuity. The United States team 
was chosen on the basis of perform- 
ance in the U.S.A. Mathematical 
Olympiad, held on May 4. The 
team was honored at ceremonies in 
Washington and prepared for the 
international competition at a 
training seminar, held this year at 
the U. S. Naval Academy. 

Miller is the son of the dean of 
the College and professor of mathe- 
matics, Stephen E. Puckette, C'49, 
and Mrs. Puckette, who was a 
summa cum laude graduate in 
mathematics from Smith. Miller 
is going to M.I.T. 


David Owen Cook, A'76, has won 
a Merit Scholarship to Duke Uni- 
versity. The son of Lt. Col. (ret) 
Peyton Cook, the Academy's dean 
of students, and Mrs. Cook, a con- 
tributor to this magazine, David 
was valedictorian of his class. He 
won the Physics Medal, was a 
member of the Academy Players, 
the math team and the yearbook 
staff. He was a Tennessee All-Star 
soccer player and was captain of 
the Academy's soccer team and day 
proctor for the school. He plans to 
study engineering at Duke. 



Harkins, Whitesell Retire 

The mandatory retirement-at-sixty- 
five rule, established several years 
ago but providing full implementa- 
tion for the faculty for the first 
time this year, has speeded the de- 
parture of Dr. Frederick Whitesell, 
professor of German, and William 
Harkins, University librarian. 

Others leaving include two 
matrons, Mrs. Margaret Lee Jones 
of Cleveland Hall and Mrs. Mildred 
Moore of Hoffman. The buildings 
and lands department has lost three 
long-time employees to mandatory 
retirement age. James W. Campbell, 
plumber, has served the University 
since July 1932. Marion Castleberry, 
stock clerk for the University shop, 
has put in thirty-six years and Paul 
W. Mooney, thirty. Mr. Mooney 
was manager of the University 
Dairy from 1946 to 1959 and has 
worked since then at the Bishop's 
Common and the University Shop. 

Cornelius Kennedy, Charles 
Morgan and Charles C. Reed have 
been retired from the staff after 
forty, twenty-seven, and fifteen 
years respectively. Mr. Morgan has 
been at the University Shop, the 
water filter plant and the Sewanee 
Utility District. Mr. Kennerly was 
in food services, latterly at the 
Academy. Mr. Reed was a dis- 
patcher for the police department. 

Dr. Whitesell came to Sewanee 
as associate professor of German in 
1952 from the University of Wis- 
consin. He had also taught at the 
University of Michigan, Michigan 
State University and the University 
of California at Berkeley. His 
bachelor's and master's degrees are 
from the University of Michigan 
and his Ph.D. from the University 
of California. He is the author 
with Martin Joos of A Middle High 
German Courtly Reader, which has 
remained a standard graduate text 
for over twenty-five years. Among 
many articles he has contributed to 
professional journals the most 
reprinted is "How to Study a 
Foreign Language." 

His ardent hobbies, which may 
now turn into businesses, have 
included clockmaking, cabinet 
work, photography and bookbind- 
ing. Like Dr. Edward McCrady, he 
did much of the finish work on his 
house himself and also like Dr. 
McCrady has led many an expedi- 
tion into caves (he took three stu- 
dents along on his thirty-sixth visit 
to Wet Cave not long ago). Se- 
wanee's fine tower clock, sighted at 
the height of his rage for tower 
clocks, helped attract him to the 
University of the South and he has 
been the clock's volunteer curator 
and maintenance man since his 
arrival, an occupation he has been 
permitted to continue. 

Library Prime Asset under Harkins 

William Harkins assumed the 
post that was to become vital in the 
University's steady hold on aca- 
demic excellence, in 1962. He came 
here from the associate directorship 
of libraries of the University of 
Florida at Gainesville, having also 
been librarian of the University of 
Miami and of the College of William 
and Mary. His B.A. was from the 
University of Alabama, his B.S. in 
library science from the University 
of Illinois and his M.A. in library 
science from the University of 
Michigan. He did post-graduate 
work for three summers at the 
University of Chicago. 

Mr. Harkins worked with his 
predecessor, John Hodges, for a 
year in the planning stage of the 
new duPont Library and then 
alone directed the fruition of a 
long-held hope in the building of 
the great resource, hardly equaled 
on the undergraduate level. The 
building was made possible by the 
success of the Ten Million Dollar 
Campaign in the 1960s and was 
named in recognition of Jessie 
Ball duPont, who gave the Uni- 
versity $7,000,000 in her life- 
time. Under William Harkins the 
University's library moved from 
16,000 to 116,000 square feet, 
its staff from five to twenty-five 
and its collections from 108,416 
to an estimated 299,714 by June 
30, with use figures rising similarly. 
Since the projection in 1965 was 
for 300,000 volumes within the 
decade, in the light of unforeseen 
inflation and recession Mr. Harkins 
has come astonishingly close. The 
normal figure for doubling a 
library collection has been set at 
twenty-two years. The replacement 
value of the library and its holdings 
has been estimated at between 
$15,000,000 and $20,000,000. 
William Harkins' careful husbanding 
of resources and ability to attract 
gifts are in great measure to be 

Watson Is Head Librarian 
"This building is a librarian's 
dream," says Tom Watson, suc- 
cessor to William Harkins as head 
of the University libraries centering 
in duPont. 

The sentiment appears to be 
reciprocal. In the opinion of 
colleagues, he is a university's 
dream of a librarian. 

Looking youthful behind a 
neat beard, he radiates vigor and 
enthusiasm not stereotypically 
associated with libraries as he talks 
of his new charge. "Going through 
files I am struck by the letters from 
librarians of leading libraries all 
over the country, saying essentially 

William Harkins 

the same thing, that there is not 
another library serving an academic 
institution this size that can be 
compared in its facilities with this 

The new head librarian was 
born thirty-eight years ago in Okla- 
homa. He has his B.A. from Oklaho- 
ma Baptist University, his M.A. in 
English from the University of 
Arkansas and his M.S.L.S. from 
Simmons College in Boston. He has 
also done research in British aca- 
demic librarianship at Cambridge. 
He has had NDEA and Southern 
University Research fellowships 
from the University of Arkansas 
and from Harvard, and is a member 
of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Before coming to Sewanee he 
was director of library and media 
services at Newberry College in 
Newberry, South Carolina. He has 
also been assistant director of the 
Maxwell Library at Bridgewater 
State College in Bridgewater, Massa- 
chusetts. He taught English at 
Bridgewater, at the Tabor Academy 
in Marion, Massachusetts, and at 
the University of Southern Missis- 
sippi in Hattiesburg. He has been 
president of the South Carolina 
Foundation of Independent College 
Librarians and has served as con- 
sultant to the Central Midlands 
Regional Planning Council for 
Library Planning. 

Mr. Watson was senior warden 
and layreader of St. Luke's Episco- 
pal Church in Newberry. He is a 
member of the Commission on the 
Ministry and of the Task Force on 
Christian Education for the diocese 
of Upper South Carolina. He and 
his wife, who is also a librarian, 
have two sons. 

"My reaction to Sewanee is the 
same as it was ten years ago, when 
we first were here," he says, "not 
that of visiting a place for the first 
time, but of returning home. Since 
that time my wife and I both have 

wanted to come here permanently, 
and this is a culmination of ten 
years' ambition. 

"I am happy for both profes- 
sional and personal reasons. Aca- 
demically, I am totally in sympathy 
with the University's programs and 
aims, particularly its strong adher- 
ence to the liberal arts tradition 
when so many — indeed most— other 
institutions have embraced one 
form of faddism or another. 

"Also, I am firmly committed 
to the Episcopal Church, I think 
the Church has a role in education, 
and I am glad to be a part of it." 

duPont's Evolution To Be Studied 

"I don't know of any other profes- 
sion where change has come as 
rapidly as it has to librarianship," 
is the rather startling statement of 
the new University librarian, Tom 

"Sewanee's, like every library 
in the country, has to face up to 
two major revolutions that have 
hit librarianship very hard— the 
advent of non-print information 
media and their integration into 
the total operation, and automated 
technology, the computer." 

The duPont Library is already 
beginning to meet the latter chal- 
lenge, Mr. Watson points out, with 
its tie-in to a national library com- 
puter network, whose implications 
for the future are all but un- 
dreamed-of. Integration of non- 
print information is also bound to 
be in the cards, Mr. Watson thinks, 
but as part of long and careful 
study and planning. 

The first major change, already 
in the works and awaiting only the 
wherewithal, is the incorporation of 
the St. Luke's theological library 
into duPont, where the fourth 
floor, now unfinished, was pro- 
jected for just such expansion. The 
School of Theology needs the space 

Thomas Watson, duPont Library 

and Mr. Watson foresees some ad- 
vantages to the University as a 
whole in the move. 

Most professional libraries are 
housed in their own units, he says, 
and there is much strength in that. 
On the other hand, the relocation . 
would bring the theology students 
more into the main stream of 
University life, and the bulk of the 
library's resources would become 
more apparent to them. Changes 
in theological training, he points 
out, make studies in psychology, 
sociology, history, science, etc. 
increasingly important. 

Economics and increased 
efficiency will result, he believes, 
since much duplication of reference 
works and periodicals, as well as in 
library processing, can be avoided. 

Mr. Watson speaks warmly of 
a third result of the proposed inte- 
gration. That is the benefit to the 
whole University community of the 
talents and experience of T. Edward 
Camp, longtime St. Luke's librarian 
who is now associate University 

Tom Watson expects to meet 
"regularly and long" with the library 
committees to examine policies and 
activities, "find out why we are 
doing things and if we are meeting 
'he needs of the University com- 
munity adequately. We will decide 
what we want to do, and set pri- 
orities for what we realistically can 
do. We may make some changes as 
we go along but that will have to be 
done with great care, as a change in 
one process— say acquisitions— has 
effects on all the other departments 
'h a complex mechanism like this 

"I believe myself to be unusually 
fortunate in the nucleus of pro- 
fessional and support staff we have 
he re," he emphasizes. "That is 
what makes it possible to plan, 
"istead of just swatting at brush 

Camp's Duties Broaden 
T. Edward Camp, who has been 
librarian for the School of Theo- 
logy since 1957, is now also associ- 
ate University librarian, with a 
central role in the direction of the 
combined libraries of both cam- 
puses. The libraries of the College 
and School of Theology will be 
physically joined as soon as feasible 
(see above). 

Mr. Camp has been one of the 
most respected members of the 
joint faculties and a community 
leader during his long service to 
Sewanee. He has been an instructor 
of music and of bibliography as 
well as a bulwark librarian, and has 
been the elected representative 
from his district on the Community 
Council. He is organist and senior 
warden of Otey Parish. 

He has his B.A. from Centenary 
College of Louisiana and M.S.L.S. 
from Louisiana State University. 
He has studied at Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity Divinity School and at the 
School of Theology of the Univer- 
sity of the South. He is the co- 
author, with Ella V. Aldrich (Mrs. 
Calvin Schwing), of the widely 
used Using Theological Books and 
Libraries, and the author of a 
variety of articles in professional 
publications. He is a former execu- 
tive secretary of the American 
Theological Library Association 
and is on the association's Ad Hoc 
Committee on Personnel Exchange. 

His current research interests 
are in the area of the librarian as 
teacher and the development and 
use of computerized aids to library 

His wife, Elizabeth, is the 
faculty secretary for the School of 
Theology, and their daughter, 
Anne, is a graduate of the Academy. 

Germanist Is Opera Buff 
Dr. James C. Davidheiser, joining 
the department of German as an 
assistant professor, comes from a 
similar position at the University 
of Delaware. Born in 1941, he has 
his B.A. degree from La Salle 
College and his M.A. and Ph.D. 
from the University of Pittsburgh. 
He also attended the University of 
Vienna for a year. 

He has taught English at the 
University of Mainz in Germany 
and German at the University of 
Pittsburgh as well as in Delaware, 
where he was assistant professor 
of German language, literature and 
comparative literature. 

He has a strong interest in 
opera and his Ph.D. dissertation 
encompassed Verdi with Franz 
Werfel. In 1974 he had an Improve- 
ment of Instruction grant from the 
University of Delaware to develop 
an inter-disciplinary course on ro- 
manticism with a member of the 
music department. He has had a 
number of articles published in 
language journals, including two on 
German literature in translation and 
several on the teaching of literature. 

Equestrian Center Has New Head 
John P. Tansey comes from the 
University of Massachusetts, where 
he has been assistant riding instruc- 
tor, to direct the University Eques- 
trian Center. He graduated from the 
University of Massachusetts last 
year with a degree in animal science 
with emphasis on horsemanship and 
stable management. Among his 
accomplishments are a first place in 
the Runaway Farm horse show and 
high placement in a number of 
others, and the initiation at the 
University of Massachusetts of a 
therapeutic riding program, opening 
the sport to physically handicapped 

Mr. Tansey succeeds Alice Gar- 
land, the very popular instructor 
who has moved to Memphis. She 
has accepted a position as merchan- 
dise manager for J. Morgan New- 
bern, Inc., an import-export firm. 
She also teaches dressage, hunter 
seat equitation and jumping for the 
Hugh Frank Smith Farm in Ger- 
man town.

h ; ew Assistant Chaplain 
The Rev. Carlyle Gill is assistant 
Chaplain of the University, suc- 
ceeding the Rev. J. Daryl Canfill, 
who has left to become rector of 
St. Thomas' Church in Huntsville, 

As one of three assistant 
chaplains working in a team minis- 
try with the University chaplain, 
the Rev. Charles Kiblinger, Miss 
Gill's pastoral responsibilities will 
be primarily focused within the 
College of Arts and Sciences. 

A native of Maryland, the 
young assistant chaplain was 
awarded the degree of Master of 
Divinity with honors this spring by 
the Virginia Theological Seminary. 
She was ordained deacon May 22 
by the Rt. Rev. Robert B. Hall, 
Bishop of Virginia. With a special 
interest in teaching and counseling, 
she had a year's training in pastoral 
counseling in the clinical pastoral 
education program at Massachusetts 
General Hospital. From 1971 to 
1973 she was a teacher of religion 
at the Walnut Hill School in Natick, 

Her B.A. is from Queens Col- 
lege in Charlotte, North Carolina, 
including archaeological studies in 
Tell Arad and Jerusalem. Her mas- 
ter's, centered on psychiatry and 
religion, is from Columbia. 

The Rev. Carlyle Gill was 
chosen for the post of assistant 
chaplain in consultation with a 
search committee made up of stu- 
dents, faculty and the former Chan- 
.cellor, Bishop Girault M. Jones. 
The Rev. Charles Kiblinger, Uni- 
versity chaplain, points out that the 
selection of a woman is not a new 
experience in the chaplaincy since 
the assistant chaplain for the semi- 
nary in 1974-75 was a woman, 
Sister June David. 

Canfill to Huntsville 
The Rev. J. Daryl Canfill, C'59, 
has left the Mountain to assume the 
rectorship of St. Thomas' Church 
in Huntsville, Alabama. He returned 
over Commencement to carry out 
his function as its coordinator. 
A Rhodes Scholar with a B.A. 
from Exeter College, Oxford, and 
S.T.B. from General Theological 
Seminary, he returned to Sewanee 
as assistant chaplain and instructor 
of religion in 1968. He had a re- 
markably close rapport with the 
College students. He organized and 
for many years directed the Col- 
lege's extraordinarily effective ori- 
entation program for new students, 
and his artwork has embellished 
many University publications, in- 
cluding the Sewanee News. 


Four lawyers, four physicians, 
three clergymen, an industrial 
psychologist, a school headmaster 
and several business people were 
among the owls who came to 
Athens for Periscope '76, Sewanee's 
first summer alumni college. There 
were thirty-five alumni, their 
spouses, and friends of the Uni- 
versity, bringing with them a total 
of twelve children, aged three to 

The group cohered almost at 
once into a congenial and mutually 
stimulating lot. The faculty found 
themselves uncommonly stimulated 
too. "Isn't it great to talk to people 
who really have questions?" was 
the reaction of Dr. Anita Goodstein, 
chairman of the University of the 
South history department. Dr. 
Goodstein opened the series of lec- 
tures and discussions with a run- 
down on how new research tools 
have opened up questions and sug- 
gested some answers about the 
American Revolution, such as who 
was on which side and why. 

Dr. Claud Sutcliffe, associate 
professor of political science, was 
another much-commended genera- 
tor of sparks that filled the air of 

Bishop's Common and flew through 
the dormitory after hours. 

The whole program was a 
resounding success, in the opinion 
of all observers. "The best alumni 
program I have ever encountered 
here or elsewhere," said a local 
veteran of alumni work. "I want to 
come here when I grow up," said a 
four-year-old early decision-maker. 

Some excerpts from a sheaf of 
comments by participants: 

"Please, please have this pro- 
gram next summer. 

"It is the most rewarding, the 
most pleasant vacation I have ever 
spent. Not only did I rejoice in 
personal growth, I rejoiced to see 
that Sewanee has moved into the 
twentieth century." 

"Thanks for having no visual 
aids to foul up the program." 

"The program should continue 
and expand. 

"It's simply what a University 
should do. 

"We'll be back!" 

One engaging conceit that 
spread through the group was, 
"Take me off the alumni list as 
C'59 and put me down as R'76. 
The 'R' stands for 'Recycled.' "

h& The 24-Hour 

Much of education has noth- 
ing to do with courses and 
classrooms. After classes 
and after dinner in a Board- 
ing School, students and 
teachers are in studios, labs, 
lounges, athletic activities — 
on and off campus. 
When students attend local 
schools, their fellow stu- 
dents are from the same 
town, and often have simi- 
lar viewpoints. Only in 
Boarding Schools do they 
learn with students from 
often more than 30 states 
and many foreign countries. 
Somehow, sometime, a girl 
or a boy has to leave home to 
find out who she or he is. 
Sometimes college is time 
enough, but not always. The 
time to invest in education is 
when the need is obvious. A 
24-hour school is simply 
more in every way. 
This attractive alternate in 
education is found Only in 
Boarding Schools. It 
might just be your best 
choice — as a student, as a

t West for the Japanese garden dedication 


The Japanese garden near Woods 
Laboratories, designed and set out 
in 1973 by a class in oriental art 
history, was dedicated June 20 
to H. Stanford and Theodora 

Stanford Barrett was head of 
the art department at the Univer- 
sity from 1960 until his death in 
1970. He came to Sewanee as 
artist in residence after retiring 
from a commercial art career which 
included advertising and display 
design for various automobile 
companies (he designed the original 
Motorama which was installed in 
Chicago's Museum of Science and 
Industry). Just before coming to 
Sewanee he taught for six years at 
Notre Dame in the department of 

For three years he directed the 
Sewanee Summer Fine Arts Center, 

which he started. One of his last 
projects was research in Mexico on 
a Ford Foundation Humanities 
Grant, for a book on contemporary 
Mexican art. His paintings hang in 
many private collections and 

Mrs. Barrett served for several 
years as director of the University 
art gallery and compiled the first 
catalog of its holdings. She has 
also been involved in the Sewanee 
Crafts Fair and a member of the 
Tennessee Arts Commission dance 
committee. In 1971 she went as a 
volunteer to Vietnam where she 
taught English in a Montagnard 
orphanage for a year. Many Sewa- 
nee projects, enterprises and per- 
sons will feel her absence keenly 
now that she has moved to Arizona. 


Of six Crossroad Books advertised 
by the Seabury Press in the August 
Episcopalian, two are by members 
of the School of Theology faculty: 
Confirmation, The Celebration of 
Maturity in Christ by Dean Urban 
T. Holmes III and Sanctifying Life, 
Time and Space, An Introduction 
to Liturgical Study by Marion J. 

In the same issue is a review of 
the second of two books prepared 
at the behest of Bishop Allin to lay 
groundwork for decision-making at 
General Convention while serving 
broader purposes as well. Both are 
co-edited by Dean Holmes, this 
one, Male and Female, Christian 
Approaches to Sexuality, with 
Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse. The first 
book, To Be a Priest, was noted in 
the May issue of the Sewanee News. 
Both were published by the Sea- 
bury Press. 

Many authors and points of 
view are brought together by the 
editors. In the Episcopalian review, 

Martha Moscrip says in part, 
"This new volume should have a 
wider appeal than the first because 
relatively few of us are or want to 
be priests, but all of us are sexual 
beings, and that is this book's 
subject . . . 

"Section IV is titled 'Psycho- 
logical Perspectives.' The latter, 
praise be, are straightforward and 
clear. Urban T. Holmes' "The 
Sexuality of God" is particularly 
good, interestingly written, and 
includes some reasoning which may 
be new to much of the laity as well 
as something for serious thinking." 

Another reviewer, Louie Crew, 
takes exception to what he con- 
siders one-sidedness in the section 
on homosexuality. 

Off the press August 16 is a 
book of Dean Holmes' authorship, 
Ministry and Imagination, another 
Seabury Press Crossroads book. The 
dust jacket says: "In this important 
study, which draws deeply on the 
data of the human sciences as well 

Color-coded map pins, statistical 
graphs a la Dow-Jones, and careful- 
ly compiled dollar amounts usually

The fifteen Metropolitan Area 
Campaigns in 1975-76 made vital 
contributions to the overall success 
of Sewanee's Million Dollar Pro- 
gram. Thousands of those MDP 
dollars reported in this issue came 
as a direct result of people being 
brought together in the concerted 
effort of a campaign. They came 
from the work of the people of the 
Metropolitan Area Campaigns- 
alumni, parents and friends from 
Dallas to Charleston, from Nashville 
to Mobile— who volunteered to 
solicit gifts for Sewanee. 

Any successful campaign begins 
with local leadership, and Sewanee 
has found increasing evidence that 
she is blessed with human resources 
more than adequate to the task. A 
look at just one example bears this 
out. Atlanta was one of the cities 
where a Metropolitan Area Cam- 
paign was conceived, put together 
and set in motion by dedicated 
local Sewanee men and women. 

In Atlanta it began, as often is 
the case, in the office of a very 
busy man, Edwin I. Hatch, C'33, 
chairman and chief executive of 
Georgia Power Company. Already 
steeped in a habit of service to his 
university as a past trustee and 
regent, Ed Hatch accepted the job 
of co-chairman. The campaign 
gained initial momentum. 

In the office of another very 
busy man, William F, Rogers, 
C'49, Sewanee secured a second 
leader. Bill Rogers, a vice-president 
of Equitable Life Assurance Society 
of the U.S., agreed to serve as co- 

chairman; the Atlanta campaign 
had its "take charge" detail man. 

Within a week an outstanding 
group of team captains had been 
recruited. Invited to the first cap- 
tains' meeting in Ed Hatch's confer- 
ence room were Sam Carroll, C'69; 
the Rev. Judson Child, C'44, T'47; 
Herbert Eustis, C'71; Jim Ezzell, 
C'68; Dennis Hall, C'69; Morgan 
Hall, C'39; Leftwich Kimbrough, 
C'57; H. Burke Nicholson, parent 
of a C'76; and Warren Smith, C'63. 
In this important planning session, 
the campaign concept and tech- 
niques were explained and materials 
distributed to aid in recruiting team 

From the kickoff meeting two 
weeks later, fifty volunteers went 
out in the area-wide personal solici- 
tation of prospective donors. The 
ensuing effort in many cases was 
inspiring. Captain Warren Smith 
during the thick of campaigning 
was laid low by influenza and 
pneumonia, yet came back to lead 
his team to complete all assigned 
solicitations. In an earlier day it 
was known as "college try." 

A sharpened urge for achieve- 
ment has surfaced not only in 
Atlanta but in each city touched by 
a Metropolitan Area Campaign. 
More Sewanee alumni have become 
"doers" than ever before. More 
importantly, the actions they 
earlier initiated continue to help 
the University long after formal 
campaigns end. In Dallas trustee 
Keith Cox, C'61, picked up where 
the campaign ended, tackled the 
job of national chairman of the 
Vice-Chancellor's and Trustees' 
Society, and helped attract new 
donors of $1,000 or more. 

I have dwelt on Atlanta as a 
representative sample, but the same 
story, with individual variations, 
could be repeated for city after

as theology, Dean Holmes focuses 
on a vital aspect of the ministry: 
the awareness of God's Word in the 
community. It is his contention 
that if the community perceives 
God's presence everywhere, the 
people's understanding of the func- 

tion of the congregation, the priest, 
and the Church will be transformed 
. . . This book, which is in part a 
sequel to Dean Holmes' earlier 
The Future Shape of Ministry, is

The nation's 200th anniversary was 
also the Sewanee Summer Music 
Center's twentieth, and both 
occasions were resoundingly ob- 
served by the five-week music 
camp, now generally recognized 
as one of the most important in 
the country. Two hundred students 
were enrolled, and that is about as 
many as Martha McCrory, the 
center's director, cares to have for 
the intense personal instruction on 
which its success is based. 

Two world premieres were per- 
formed of works composed special- 
ly, Wilfred Lehmann's "Sewanee 
Festival Overture" and Alfred 
Bartles' "Sewanee, Independence 
Day, 1976." Guest conductors 
included Richard Burgin, former 
concertmaster and assistant con- 
ductor to Serge Koussevitsky; 
Henri Temianka, violinist, conduc- 
tor, author and, says Miss McCrory, 
"raconteur extraordinaire"; and 

Wilfred Lehmann, guest concert- 
master of the Royal London Phil- 
harmonic. Kenneth Moore of the 
Oberlin College music faculty was 
back as "permanent guest con- 

Dozens of musicians who began 
their orchestra training here have 
gone on to join university music 
faculties and city symphonies. Five 
of them were on the staff of thirty- 
four prominent artist-teachers here 
this summer. The SSMC alumni 
were David Harris of the Kent 
State University faculty; Nathan 
Kahn, principal bass of the Tulsa 
Philharmonic; Gilbert Long of the 
Grand Rapids Symphony; Lyn 
Ostoich of the University of Florida 
faculty; and Guy Parks of the 
Jacksonville Symphony. 

Participants in the Alumni 
Summer College expressed par- 
ticular satisfaction at being here 
during the concert season, and 
asked that the two dates always 

High points still vibrating the 
nerves of astonishment of local and 
visiting music buffs were a Bach 
concerto by twelve-year-old violin- 
ist Stephen Boe, a brass concert in 
the round from four directions in 
All Saints' Chapel, and the final 
Sewanee Symphony Festival offer- 
ing of Shostakovich's Fifth Sym- 
phony conducted by Wilfred 

It is impossible to convey the 
enthusiasm felt by concertgoers 
to persons who have not shared it. 
Those who cannot get here during 
the season may wish to nudge their 
local radio stations to order the 
thirteen-week series of Sewanee 
radio tapes, including nine by the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center, 
from the University's office of 
public relations. Hundreds of sta- 
tions have already done so, from 
giants like WBBM Chicago to public 
radio and college outlets. 


Sewanee joined the nation's Bicen- 
tennial celebration in characteristic 
ways. The service in All Saints' 
Chapel July 4, after diligent re- 
search, was what it would have 
been in 1776, except for greater 
brevity to accommodate our less 
hardy spirits. The carillon rang out 
the "Peal Extraordinaire" at 2:00 
and followed it with patriotic 
music. The Sewanee Summer Music 
Center gave a concert of American 
music which included one of the

Dr. Edward Carlos of the art

tion of a University float in Frank-

and parade, in which the former 
Chancellor, Bishop Girault Jones; 
Dr. J. Waring McCrady, Douglas 
Vaughan, Dr. Maurice Moore, and 
Jay Ormsby re-enacted the laying 
of the University cornerstone. 
Henry Arnold of the College Eng- 
lish faculty joined fellow Franklin 
County magistrates in depicting 
their early counterparts. The 
pageant was written and the whole 
shebang organized by Marjorie 
Hopkins, wife of George, C'53, 
and mother of George II, A'64, C 
C'68, and Sam, A'67, C'71. Direc- 
tor for the pageant was Robert 
Wilcox, the University's director of 
speech and theater. 

*StyIe Note: After weighing the 
matter carefully, the Sewanee News 
has decided to let "chairperson" and 
similar locutions fight their way into 
the language a while longer. It has 
been the observation of this editor 
that attempts to make our wonder- 
fully irrational language shape up 
do not have a high survival rate. 

Gessell To Edit 
St. Luke's Journal 
The St. Luke's Journal of Theology 
has a permanent editor, the Rev. 
John M.' Gessell, professor of 
Christian ethics in the School of 
Theology. The journal was founded 
in 1957 by the School of Theology 
under the leadership of the Rt. Rev. 
George M. Alexander, who was 
dean at the time. It has been edited 
by seminary students, who have 
done a remarkable work in estab- 
lishing the quarterly. Commenting 
on Dr. Gessell's appointment, Dean 
Urban T. Holmes has said, "In 
order to continue to further the 
growth of the Journal, the faculty 
feels it will require a consistent 
leadership and a knowledge of the 
Church and its mission that only 
such a faculty appointment can 

Along with the new editor a 
new editorial board has been named, 
including professors of religion, 
chemistry and philosophy from the 
College as well as members of the 
School of Theology faculty, univer- 
sity provost Thad N. Marsh and 
Professor Liston O. Mills of the 
Divinity School of Vanderbilt 
University. The board has already 
been at work determining policy 
and is committed to the future of 
the St. Luke's Journal as a journal 
of theological reflection relating, 
through an interdisciplinary ap- 
proach, current insights of biblical 
and theological study to contemp- 
orary issues. An editorial advisory 
board drawing on nationwide re- 
sources has also been formed to 
represent the Journal to a wider 

Nonagenarian— Ageless? 

Eugene M. Kayden, H'69, pro- 
fessor emeritus of economics who 
recently celebrated his ninetieth 
birthday, was a Student Forum 
speaker this year, presenting an 
evening of Russian poetry in trans- 
lation. He dedicated the evening to 
Robert M. Ayres, C'49, H'74, 
regent, former chairman of the 
board of regents and chairman of 
the Million Dollar Program. Mr. 
Ayres was a student of Professor 
Kayden and has maintained a long 
friendship with him. "Mr. Ayres," 
Kayden said, "as regent and active 
worker in the field of relief and 
brotherhood, represents the best 
and noblest of Sewanee, the best 
of human sympathy and brother- 

Since retiring in 1955 Mr. Kay- 
den has devoted himself to trans- 
lating Russian poetry. Time maga- 
zine in 1959 designated his volume 
of Pasternak's Poems as the "Year's 
Best in Poetry." Seven volumes of 
his translations have been published 




by university presses and one by 
Hallmark Cards, and the Colorado 
Quarterly has been printing thirty 
to fifty pages of his work from 
various Russian poets in each of 
its issues for the past five years. 

Sewanee Review Wins Irish Praise 

The Sewanee Review under the 
editorship of George Core contin- 
ues to gather far-flung laurels, as 
witness this saucy testimonial by 
"Quidnunc," in "An Irishman's 
Diary," the Irish Times, April 16 
and 17, 1976: 

"While it is well known that the 
exagification and codologification 
of the works of the late J. Joyce of 
Dublin are nowadays virtually the 
monopoly of Mittel-American 
academics it is also a quirky fact 
that much of the best criticism of 
modern Irish letters also emanates 
from those same Everglades of 

"A shining example of this is 
the winter 1976 issue of the 
Sewanee Review, a quarterly which 
is published by the University of 
the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, 
and edited by George Core. This 
edition, a special issue, is devoted 
to the literature of modern Ireland, 
sells at $3.25, and contains a lot 
more relevant and percipient 
analysis of Irish writing than you'll 
find in whole volumes of. our home- 
produced literary reviews." 

Also spotted, in the catalog of 
Bernard Quaritch, English book- 
sellers, is an offer of the T. S. Eliot 
issue of the Sewanee Review, edited 
by Allen Tate in 1966, for £28. The 
copy has manuscript corrections to 
his essay by G. Wilson Knight. 

And More Honors for Allen Tate 

Allen Tate, former editor of the 
Sewanee Review, former Brown 
Tutor on the College faculty, and 
eminent man of letters, has won his 
second $10,000 literary prize this 
year, along with the National Medal 
for Literature from the American 
Academy of Arts and Letters and 
the National Institute of Arts and 
Letters. Unable to receive the 
award in person because of his 
frail health, he sent this message: 
"I deeply regret that I cannot re- 
ceive in person the National Medal 
for Literature. This is the highest 
honor that can be bestowed upon 
an American writer. It comes to me 
from colleagues and friends; and 
this is deeply satisfying." 

The earlier award was from the 
Ingram Merrill Foundation. The 
Tates have given up their Sewanee 
residence, from where he has had to 
be rushed to Vanderbilt Hospital a 
number of times, to live in Nash- 
ville near the sophisticated medical 
paraphernalia required for his care. 

Dr. McCrady at home at Glen Antrim 

Toronto Applauds McCrady 

Dr. Edward McCrady, former Vice- 
Chancellor and currently professor 
of biology (fall semester Sewanee, 
spring semester College of Charles- 
ton) was the Bickersteth Lecturer 
at the University of Toronto in 
April. His topic was "Science and 
Belief: Some Compatibilities." 
While in Toronto he preached at 
Trinity College Chapel and spoke to 
a gathering of Trinity College fac- 
ulty and clergy. Sources in Toronto 
tell us that the university's Chris- 
tian Reformed chaplain said that 
Dr. McCrady made a better impres- 
sion than Michael Ramsey, former- 
ly Archbishop of Canterbury, and 
another clergyman declared he had 
garnered all his material for Holy 
Week preaching from Dr. McCrady 's 
various talks! Conversations with 
the provost of Trinity College 
included a good deal of reminiscing 
about Jessie Ball duPont, who was 
a benefactor of both Trinity and 
Sewanee. Dr. McCrady came back 
to Glen Antrim, his and Mrs. 
McCrady's self -built Sewanee home, 
and happily occupied his perma- 
nent seat in the first violin section 
of the beginners' orchestra of the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center. 

Joint D.Min. Program Flourishes 

Forty students were enrolled in the 
Joint Doctor of Ministry program 
at the School of Theology this sum- 
mer, well over the number for pre- 
ceding graduate school sessions. 
Sponsored by the Sewanee-Vander- 
bilt Theological Coalition, courses 
are divided between Sewanee and 
Nashville with faculty from both 
schools teaching in both places. 
All students work both here and 
there. Dr. Donald S. Armentrout 
of Sewanee heads the program. 

Academy Abroad 

James Scott, chemistry instructor 
at the Academy and leader of its 
outdoor program, taught mountain- 
eering for his fourth summer with 
the Swiss Challenge Program. James 
Banks, biology instructor, attended 
Tennessee Tech's Aqua Program at 
Center Hill Lake, studying fresh 
water algae and invertebrates. Rosie 
Paschall, art teacher, joined her 

husband, Douglas, College English 
instructor, at Oxford, where he is 
teaching in the British Studies at 
Oxford program at University Col- 
lege. Rosie studied art history and 
planned to investigate pottery tech- 
niques and other art forms at 

More Copepods 

Dr. Harry Yeatman, professor of 
biology, has an article, "Marine 
Littoral Copepods from Jamaica," 
in Crustaceana, international Jour- 
nal of Crustacean Research, March 
1976, pp. 201-219. The article is 
based on collections Dr. Yeatman 
made in May and June 1964 for 
the purpose of determining what 
species of copepods live among and 
above the algae of the Jamaican 
coastal region. 

Mountain Laurels 

DR. KENNETH GRAY, instructor 
in economics in the College, is off 
to Russia on an International 
Research and Exchange Board 
(IREX) nomination and a Fulbright- 
Hays grant for faculty research 
abroad. He will study Russian agri- 
culture . . . LEOPOLD FRADE, 
T'77, has been awarded a $5,000 
scholarship from the Fund for Theo- 
logical Education for 1976-77. He is 
one of fifteen .Hispanic-Americans 
to receive the scholarships this 
year, and one of only two Episco- 
palians . . . DALE TRIMBLE, C'77, 
has won a Rotary Fellowship Edu- 
cational Award for graduate study 
abroad in 1977. He was the first 
recipient of the Arthur Butler 
Dugan award for the outstanding 
political science student and is par- 
ticipating in the Southern Politics 
Intern program this summer as an 
administrative aide to the city man- 
ager of Lufkin, Texas, his home- 
town . . . DR. ARTHUR SCHAE- 
FER, associate professor of eco- 
nomics, is vice-president for private 
schools of the Tennessee section of 
the American Association of Uni- 
versity Professors ... A freshman 
last year, PHILIP JONES, working 
with Marcia Clarkson in the data 
processing service is reputed to 
know six computer languages.

In a society where we have always taken pride in 
how much we can achieve through private initiative, 
through our 'free enterprise' system, now is not the 
time to lose sight of the truly unique advantages 
afforded to American society and to the American 
future by our 'free-est' enterprise of all— indepen- 
dent higher education.

Sewanee Braves 

"Take me out to the ball game . . . 
buy me some beer and watermelon." 
So beckoned Atlanta Club presi- 
dent Jim Ezzell, C'68, for Sewanee 
fans to "root, root, root for the 
home team" as the Braves met the 
Cincinnati Reds on Sunday evening, 
July 25. Replacing the customary 
stands were picnic tables right by 
the Braves dugout where the Sewa- 
nee Club of Atlanta gathered for 
their summer outing in their own 
reserved section, sat back, sipped 
suds and watched the action from 
the first base line. Special guests 
were new Sewanee basketball coach 
Don Millington, wife Betsy, and 
baby son, Matthew. 

Louisville Hosts Dean 

College Dean Stephen Puckette, 
C'49, addressed the first official 
gathering of the Sewanee Club of 
Greater Louisville on May 27 at 
the invitation of Cathedral Dean 
Allen Bartlett, C'51. An enthusi- 
astic group heard an up-to-date 
report on Sewanee happenings at 
the Harmony Landing Country 

Changes in New York 

No longer all-male and black tie, 
the Sewanee Club of New York's 
annual gathering this year on 
June 2 was an innovative affair 
at Manhattan's famous Racquet 
Club. The speaker was Dr. Robert 
Cassidy, who has been only one 
year at Sewanee teaching religion. 
It was all the idea of Lee Glenn, 

C'57, club president who worked 
in cooperation with trustee Edwin 
Williamson, C'61, on the arrange- 
ments. Dr. Cassidy is from New 
Jersey, and it was thought that a 
spokesman from Sewanee with 
local ties and a fresh view from the 
Mountain would prove stimulating. 
Letters received in the alumni 
office cited Dr. Cassidy's presenta- 
tion as "exciting" and him as 
"surely Sewanee's best representa- 

Sports and Steak at Houston 

Golf in the morning and tennis in 
the afternoon were offered Sewa- 
nee Club of Houston members at 
the Newport Club on June 5. The 
package arrangement put together 
by W. Palmer Kelly, C'65, also 
featured a rib-eye steak dinner. 

Washington Greets New Faces 
At the generous invitation of 
Marjorie and Gordon Peyton, C'62, 
the Sewanee Club of Washington 
gathered in Alexandria at their 
lovely home, "Eastern View," on 
July 17 for cocktails. Many new 
faces and people who were unable 
to attend the annual spring outing 
were present on this delightful 

Nashville Lawn Party 
Box lunch and beer at a modest 
price entitled the Sewanee Club 
of Nashville to a lawn party at the 
home of Wentworth Caldwell, C'63, 
on August 12. It was put together 
by Pete Stringer, C'67, and Rob

Bluegrass in Chattanooga 

Seeking a permanently rejuvenated 
Chattanooga Sewanee Club, alumni, 
students and friends heard bluegrass 

music August 13 at the home of 
Lawson Whitaker, C'72„ built by 
contractor Lawson himself on 
Lookout Mountain. Strong leader- 
ship and careful planning by club 
president Ned Boehm, C'69, augur- 
ed a big success for the first regular 
gathering in 1976. 

Jackson Starts Out with Cheese 

After two organizational meetings 
and some of the most thorough 
homework ever undertaken toward 
putting a club together, Central 
Mississippi held its first regular 
affair in a wine and cheese format 
August 19 on the commons of 
St. Andrew's School in Jackson. 
Chairman of the event was Scott 
Welch III, C'61, in cooperation 
with the Rev. Douglas Stirling, 
C'67, and temporary chairman 
John Allin, C'74. 

Tampa-Sewanee Fly-In 

Some thirty-five alumni, mostly 
early 1970s graduates, will arrive 
at Sewanee's Jackson-Myers Field 
from Tampa on Saturday, October 
16, just in time for the annual 
meeting of the Associated Alumni. 
Bobby Newman, C'73, chartered a 
DC3 to accommodate Sewanee 
alumni and friends, most of whom 
are not having a reunion but just 
coming for the festivities. 


Alumni are listed under the graduating 
class with which they entered, unless they 
have other preferences. When they have 
attended more than one unit— Academy, 
College, School of Theology, Graduate 
School of Theology, etc.— they are listed 
with the earliest class. Alumni of the 
college, for example, are urged to note 
the period four years earlier for class- 
mates who also attended the Academy. 

The alumni office at Sewance 
glad to forward correspondence.

One day, many years ago, Justice Oliver 
Wendell Holmes found himself on a train. In due 
course the conductor came through collecting 
tickets from his passengers. As he approached 
Holmes, the justice began to search his pockets, 
his billfold, and his briefcase looking for his 
ticket. The conductor recognized him and 
smiled, "It's all right, Mr. Justice, I know you. If 
you tell me you have a ticket, I will accept that.

Don't trouble yourself further." Holmes looked

In the past twenty-five years higher educa- 
tion in America took a journey, without a ticket 
and without a map, that may have been as 
eventful and as significant as any it has taken 
since universities rose out of the mist of the 
middle ages. This has been a period of funda- 
mental change in structure, value, and philoso- 
phy. Driven by the spur of relevance and the 
whip of innovation, administrators were not 
always sure where they were going either. On 
this nostalgic day in our 121st year we can look 
back, ignoring parochial issues, and consider 
what it means. 

We begin in 1950 because the number is 
round and the times were relatively quiet. Korea 
was about to explode and the AFROTC would 
arrive to halt the student flight to other 
campuses with its own elite flight. In June of 
that year 105 college seniors and sixteen sem- 
inarians were graduated. That fall there were 
522 undergraduates and forty-one teachers in 
the College. The seminary counted seventy-two 
students and seven teachers. 

In the past twenty-five years 
higher education in America 
took a Journey, without a ticket 
and without a map. 

In 1950 Walsh Hall was a charming barn 
whose floors were not level nor were they 
necessarily parallel. St. Luke's Hall was equally 
gothic. There was no Guerry Hall, All Saints' 
was still incomplete, the duPont Library was 
fifteen years away, Woods Lab was unconstruct- 
ed. The Juhan Gymnasium was unknown. The 
Bishop's Common spot was a sort of drag strip. 
There was no Gailor, Hunter, Cleveland, Bene- 
dict, McCrady, Courts, Trezevant, or French 
House. The newest dormitory was Tuckaway. 

Faculty who had not yet graduated from the 
College in 1950— or were graduated that year- 
included, in alphabetical order, Alvarez, Arnold, 
Chaplain Bainbridge, Binnicker, Carlson, Cocke, 
Ed England at the Academy, Glenos, Head- 
master Hutson, Keele, Chaplain Kiblinger, 
Kirven, Waring McCrady, Meyers, Naylor, Pas- 
chall, Priestley, Seiters, Stirling, Phil White and 
others. Dr. Fletcher Stuart, surgeon Dudley Fort, 
and regents Richard Doss and Thomas Tisdale 
were also graduated since that time. 

Three times a year there were girls known to 
most of us as "dance girls" but to some as the 
"dancing girls." They came briefly, forged 

enduring bonds (there are faculty and alumni 
wives to prove it), and left behind a student 
body convinced that coeducation was a contra- 
diction in terms. 

It sounds archaic, primitive, and scrawny. It 
was none of these things. Indeed these were the 
years when we were producing some of our best 
scholars and finest priests. We knew we were up- 
to-date because the dean of men would soon 
have a student with his private plane on campus. 

Elitism was about to become 
a pejorative term. 

Did we have a rule? The dean determined that 
the automobile rule applied. Another crisis 
passed. We have come far enough to count over 
1,000 undergraduates and almost eighty-five 
seminarians currently enrolled. Tuition has risen 
from $380 a year in the College and $100 a year 
in the seminary. Buildings, streets, parking lots, 
student apartments, and faculty homes have 
popped up like mushrooms after a summer 
shower. In the quarter century after 1950 higher 
education was mauled and hassled and revolu 
tionized. Egalitarianism or the Populist philoso 
phy created a new openness on our campuses 
The old hierarchical structure of American edu 
cation was fundamentally reordered. New stan 
dards and assumptions replaced the old norma 
tive order. Universities are now less sacrosanct 
less the quiet contemplative enclaves of old. 
This spot was chosen as the site of a new South- 
ern university because it was free from the 
disturbing intrusions of the crass world outside. 
Now London is almost as close as New York 
was and students travel together to Mount 
LeConte and Mayfair with equal ease. In 1950 
Sewanee's brave and honored youth were being 
trained to take their places as the generation's 
leaders. Students were drawn from a broad 
geographic range but from a narrow social base. 
Elitism was about to become a pejorative term. 
The changes about to overtake us were not 
clearly perceived in 1950. At times we would 
seem to follow the lead of the young man who 
reported to the Chaplain one Saturday after- 
noon to be married. The bride was ready and 
plans were set. Then the Chaplain found a defect 
in the license and explained they would have to 
wait until the clerk's office opened on Monday. 
The young man was cast down but not discour- 
aged. "Can't you," he asked the Chaplain, "Just 
say a few words to get us through the weekend?"

In 6 days Sewanee beatlexas, 
Texas A6MTulane,LSUand OleMss. 

On the 7th day they tested. 

Scrawny, little Sewanee. All of 
300 students. Who seemed to pick 
the year 1899 to bellow, "We ARE 
the University of the South." 

Sewanee won 12 games that 
year. All of them. They scored 
322 points to 10 for the opponents. 
Auburn, alone, dared to score all 10. 
And lived to tell about it. 

Like a daredevil motorcyclist, 
making passing runs at a suicidal 
leap, Sewanee took Georgia, 12-0; 
Georgia Tech, 32-0; Tennessee, 
46-0; and Southwestern, 54-0. 

Then they floorboarded it. Won 
5 games in 6 days on a 2,500-mile 
barnstorming screamer. 

They fell like this: 12-0 over 
Texas in Austin, Nov. 9; 10-0 over 
Texas A&M in Houston, Nov. 10; 
23-0 over Tulane in New Orleans, 
Nov. 11; 34-0 over LSU in Baton 
Rouge, Nov. 13; 12-0 over Ole Miss 
in Memphis on Nov. 14. 

And indeed they rested. 

But that must have made them 
nervous. They went back home to 
Tennessee and took it out on 
Cumberland, 71-0. 

1899. Maybe you didn't know 
football existed in the South then. 

In that year 1899, when Sewa- 
nee was burning the biggies, we 
were tapping the first heat of steel 
from the new open-hearth plant at 

Ensley, Alabama. This was Birming- 
ham district's first commercial steel 
plant. It was an historic year. 

We Were known as Tennessee 
Coal, Iron and Railroad Company 
then, in the South. The company 
moved from Tennessee to Alabama 
in 1886 and put together the type 
of mining, coking and iron manu- 
facturing facilities it would take to 
finally pour steel in commercial 
quantities. On Thanksgiving Day, 
in 1899. 

And on the first day of the 
20th century, we made our first 
commercial shipment of steel. To a 
customer in Connecticut. 

We and Sewanee were having 
our moment in 1899, in our own 
separate ways. But ironically, our 
histories crossed in the middle of 
that century. 

In 1857, when the Sewanee 
Mining Company was about to 
become known as Tennessee Coal 
& Iron Company, U.S. Steel's pre- 
decessor in the South, we donated 
10,000 acres of Tennessee moun- 
taintop land upon which a univer- 
sity would be built. 

And that would be The Univer- 
sity of the South. Still known as 
"Sewanee" throughout the South-

The College of Arts and Sciences 
with 1,002 full-time students is at 
full enrollment, as it has been every 
year in recent times. The freshman 
class was cut back from 300 to 260 
since enrollment in the College had 
inched up to 1,023 with 990 con- 
sidered capacity. 

Scholastic Aptitude Test scores 
for the incoming class, as measured 
by the College Entrance Examina- 
tion Board, are among the highest 
ever. In the verbal part of the test 
the mean score is higher than it has 
ever been at Sewanee. This is con- 
trary to the national trend, with 
scores becoming lower each year. 
The high school grade point average 
of the class is the second highest in 

Almost all the freshmen have 
had strong extracurricular careers, 
with many sports lettermen, class 
officers, music and church workers 

The 1,002 students in the Col- 
lege come from thirty-nine states 
plus the District of Columbia, the

tries. There are 611 men and 391 
women. Twenty -six per cent are 
from Tennessee and 25 per cent 
from more than 500 miles away. 
Eighty-six per cent are from the 
twenty-four Episcopal dioceses in 
twelve states which own the Uni- 
versity of the South. 

One hundred, 10 per cent of 
the student body, are sons and 
daughters of alumni. Dean Puckette 
thinks this unusually high and in- 
dicative of Sewanee's very real con- 
tinuity. Modest research is under 
way to get data from comparable 
colleges. The first reply, from 
Southwestern at Memphis, shows 
7.2 per cent there. 

In the freshman class fifty- 
three of the 260 are sons, daughters, 
grandsons, granddaughters, brothers 
or sisters of Sewanee alumni. Of the 
"legacies" who applied, 62.5% were 
accepted, compared to 52.7% of 
other applicants. Of those accepted, 
70.7% enrolled. An alumnus' son,

Antonio, Texas, is one of eighteen

St. Luke's Overflowing 

With a target number of seventy- 
five, the School of Theology has 
eighty-four enrolled. Dean Holmes 
reported in his newsletter to St. 
Luke's alumni: "The average age 
of the entering class is thirty-one. 
This is precisely the average age of 
last year's student body. There are 
five women, giving us a total of 
seven women in the student body; 
and there are two blacks (one from 
overseas), giving us a total of 
three blacks in the student body. 
In accepting students for this year 
we took one out of three who 
applied. We closed applications 

for 1976-77 on March 31. Various 
factors operate in making the de- 
cision of whom to accept, running 
from GRE scores (the most reli- 
able indexes we have for predicting 
academic success) and diocesan 
support to the need for a good 
'mix' and representation from 
minority groups. 

"I am going into some detail 
in the matter of admissions because 
the notion still persists (as witness 
The Living Church, August 22, 
1976, p. 9) that seminaries are 
grabbing everyone they can to sur- 

vive and are consequently contrib- 
uting to the growing clergy surplus. 
The fact of the matter is that we 
want to have no more than seventy- 
five students. We will have eighty- 
one or eighty-two, due to the need 
to respond to our friends in various 
dioceses. Furthermore, it is also 
true that if we trained our priests 
only in the ten accredited seminar- 
ies of the Episcopal Church, we 
would just about keep pace with 
the number leaving the active 
priesthood! It would be great if 
more people understood this." 


In the wake of the shock wave that 
went across the nation with the 
revelation of massive violations of 
the honor code at West Point and 
reporting of a general obsolescence 
of honor codes in the national 
press, a look at Sewanee's century- 
old Honor Code seems in order. 

The deans thought it was work- 
ing as well as ever but quickly 
referred the inquirer to the students. 

Maibeth Porter of Montgomery, 
Alabama, president of the Honor 
Council, says the system works 
very well and is as strong as it ever 
was. She addressed the incoming 
students and the faculty to make 
very clear what the expectations 
of the students (it is their code) are. 
"The Honor Code is the central 
binding principle by which we all 
live," she told the newcomers. "By 
the very act of being here, you have 
pledged to support the honor sys- 
tem of this University." 

A year ago some procedural 
changes in the trials for violations 
were made, allowing the accused 
more disinterested representation 
than it was felt they had had in the 
past, but expulsion is still the pen- 
alty for those found guilty. Those 
expelled may apply for readmission 
after being out a semester, on 
recommendation of the Honor 

Maibeth expressed frank sur- 
prise at how few people voice any 
objection to signing the pledge. 
"Some say they would object to 
turning in a friend, but then they 
think it over and do sign. We haven't 
had any trouble with people con- 
cealing cheating." 

In an effort to collect random 
student opinion the present re- 
porter went to the pub, thinking 
the library might be considered a 
hangout favorably weighted toward 
the studious. 

First approached was John 
Smythia, Jr., an English major from 
Christiana, Texas. As it happened, 
he turned out to be on the Honor 
Council. "I think it works," he said. 
"I think it is the best tradition at 
the University. We do not tolerate 
dishonesty. Everybody seems to 
agree with it. There could conceiv- 

ably be some cheating here that we 
don't know about, but because of 
the Honor Code it is very small and 
goes unnoticed. I can't imagine 
what a school would be like without 
an honor code." 

Sarah Jane Boykin, a religion 
major from New Iberia, Louisiana, 
says, "I really appreciate having the 
understanding among teachers and 
students and everyone else in the 
University that everyone is on his 
honor. I think it says something 
about the value of the individual 
on campus. It gives the system of 
learning a sense of dignity. I don't 
think you can find anyone who has 

Academy Has 180 
With 180 students, the Sewanee 
Academy is the only one of the 
three units that has room for 
growth. There are 120 boys and 
60 girls, here from nineteen states 
and three foreign countries. Twelve 
students are taking courses in the 
College as well as at the Academy, 
receiving college credit in addition 
to fulfilling Academy graduation 
requirements. No extra tuition is 
charged for this privilege. 

anything negative to say about it." 
Reginald Rucker, a senior music 
major from Greenwood, South 
Carolina, thinks it works. "It doesn't 
work perfectly, but it couldn't be- 
cause everyone is human. Nobody 
wants to turn in a friend unless it 
becomes blatant. I have friends at 
a big northern university and an 
old southern college with a fine 
reputation. The one at the southern 
college says he thinks they have an 
honor code but it is not enforced 
at all. They both say the amount of 
cheating on their campuses is unbe- 
lievable. Here you don't see blatani 
cheating. I have never seen it." 


Elected by the recent General Con- 
vention of the Episcopal Church to 
seats on the Executive Council were 
Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, H'74, 
Dean Urban T. Holmes of the 
School of Theology, and Bishop 
William H. Folwell, GST'58, H'70, 
of Central Florida. The Council 
oversees the work of the Church 
between General Conventions, 
which take place every three years. 
Also elected to the Council is 
Joseph L. Hargrove, A'44, a trustee 
of the University. An oilman, he is 
senior warden of St. Mark's in 
Shreveport and was a lay deputy 
to the sixty-fifth General Con-

Senior vice-president of Rotan 
Mosle, Inc., a position from which 
he has been on leave, he has divided 
his time between Sewanee and 
world relief projects and has been a

Dean Collins, a former Univer- 
sity chaplain, was praised on all 
sides for his role as chairman of 
the committee which drafted and 
presented the recommendation. on 
the ordination of women passed at 
this Convention. The Convention 
Daily headlined him as "David 
Collins: Reconciler." "He did a 
beautiful job," Dean Holmes re- 
ported. "He was able to hear both 
points of view. He was clear in what 
was being presented. He was able 
to answer questions from the floor 
in an articulate manner. He was 
able to communicate a sense of 
calm and decisiveness." According 
to the Daily, no one on his commit- 
tee knew how Collins was going to 
vote until the vote was cast. (He 
was a latecomer to the pro side.)

The last issue of the Sewanee News 
reflected an honestly felt euphoria 
on the year just ended and a great 
upsurge in work for and giving to 
the University. Since that time, as 
the year's fiscal facts have been put 
together, a distressing deficit has 
come to light. 

In spite of exceeding the Million 
Dollar Program goal by more than 
$50,000 the corporation did experi- 
ence a surprising deficit for the year 
ending June 30, 1976 of $252,000, 
which was a bitter disappointment 
to the V ice-Chancellor and the Uni- 
versity staff. The deficit was the 
result of a combination of unbudg- 
eted expenditures in some areas and 
decreased budgeted income in 

The largest single overrun in- 
volved utilities (gas, electricity and 
coal) totaling $130,000 above the 
expenditure anticipated in the 
budget. Gas rates, for example, 
increased over 40 per cent during 
the period September 30, 1975 
through May 1, 1976. In addition, 
the weather did not cooperate: 
with an unusually cold May most of 
the plant was heated for most of 
that month. 

New tables and chairs for Gailor 
dining hall were purchased on an 

installment loan totaling $35,000 
with annual payments of $7,000 a 
year (interest-free). In late June, 
just prior to the close of the fiscal 
year, under the generally approved 
accounting procedures for colleges 
and universities the entire purchase 
was charged against the fiscal 
year ending June 30, resulting in 
an unanticipated charge of $28,000 
($7,000 had been budgeted). 

In late June the University 
treasurer reported that through a 
computing error endowment earn- 
ings had been overestimated by 
$55,000, resulting in a reduction in 
anticipated income of that amount. 

Emerald-Hodgson Hospital had 
been budgeted for a break-even 
operation, whereas in fact it exper- 
ienced an $84,000 deficit. This was 
brought about by a reduction in 
anticipated income caused partly, 
it is believed, by potential patients 
delaying elective hospitalization 
during the recession and subsequent 
unemployment in the area and by a 
reduction in the expected staff of 
referring physicians. The hospital's 
occupancy rate has been returning 
to normal expectations since the 
close of the last fiscal year. 

The Sewanee Academy operat- 
ing deficit exceeded the budgeted 

deficit (all private academic insti- 
tutions operate at a deficit) by 

It is also evident that there was 
a series of fairly small overexpendi- 
tures throughout the University 
operating budget which, when add- 
ed together, further contributed to 
the financial problems of last year. 

Offsetting these unfavorable 
experiences was the $50,000 excess 
of voluntary contributions to the 
Million Dollar Program above its 
budgeted goal and high enrollment 
in the college and seminary with 
resultant tuition income above the 
amount budgeted totaling about 

"The administration and the 
board of regents have been concen- 
trating on an in-depth review of this 
entire matter since August, when 
the size of the deficit became 
apparent," the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. 
Bennett, says. "The administration 
has also been concentrating on im- 
proving budget control and report- 
ing procedures to make it possible 
to predict fiscal performance more 
accurately and earlier in the fiscal 

"The one encouraging fact that 
has emerged up to this point," Dr. 
Bennett continued, "is that many 

of the major items which created 
the deficit are non-recurring. It is 
my hope, therefore, that the fiscal 
year performance for 1975-76 rep- 
resents a temporary aberration and 
not a trend toward recurring sub- 
stantial operating deficits. 

"The area of major continuing 
concern is that of utilities, the 
cost burden of which is extremely 
heavy. We have retained a consult- 
ing engineer in energy control to 
develop a program for energy con- 
servation designed to help offset 
this major financial burden facing 
us, which far exceeds the other 
heavy burdens imposed by inflation 
in general." 

The Vice-Chancellor said that 
since the current budget (1976-77) 
was prepared on the basis of the 
1975-76 budget and was approved 
by the regents in February of 1976, 
"It is now apparent that the actual 
experience for 1975-76 demands an 
immediate review of our current 
budget. That is under way and 
plans for economies were submitted 
to the board of regents when they 
convened for their fall meeting on 
October 11 and a second special 
report to the board is scheduled for 
their meeting in February, 1977."

constructive criticism. "The reason 
I got in," he said, "was because I 
wrote a critical book {The Prayer 
Book Liturgy and Proposed Re- 
vision). Instead of stepping on me 
they incorporated me." They de- 
serve great credit, he thinks, for 
patience and scholarship. They 
followed at least three-fourths of 
his suggestions and displayed the 
same willingness to listen to every- 
one who came forward. 

As the gallery of the House of 
Deputies began to fill for the hear- 
ing on the ordination of women, 

across the street in the Leamington 
Hotel 234 alumni, spouses and 
friends attended the Sewanee 
Dinner, at which Robert Ayres was 
the featured speaker. A standing 
ovation welcomed the Chancellor 
of the University and Presiding 
Bishop of the Episcopal Church, 
the Rt. Rev. John M. Allin. Bishop 
Hunley A. Elebash, C'44, T'50, 
H'69, of East Carolina, president 
of Province IV, shared his an- 
thology of Sewanee jokes as master 
of ceremonies. 

The regents' committee on business 
management and the board as a 
whole reviewed the University's 
fiscal affairs at their October meet- 
ing. Richard Doss, C'50, chairman 
of the board, said in the light of his 
experience as a professional man- 
agement consultant that, when con- 
sidered as a percentage of the entire 
$11 million dollar budget, he did 
not consider the $252,000 deficit 
to be shocking. He said, however, 
that the regents considered it of 
great importance to bring the budg- 
et back in balance as soon as pos- 
sible and encouraged the Vice- 
Chancellor to minimize the current 
deficit and have prepared a 1977-78 
budget that will be in balance. 

After the budget was drawn up 
last February, additional expendi- 
tures came up which required the 
regents to take another look, Doss 
said. As an example, he mentioned 
the installation of a fire protection 
system in the dormitories at a cost 
of $72,000 which the regents 
agreed was mandatory after the 
current budget was approved. The 
regents did not revise the current 
budget but urged the Vice-Chancel- 
lor to make every effort to econo- 
mize, in view of the realistic proba- 
bility that the University will run 
at a deficit again this year. 

Dr. Bennett, the Vice-Chancel- 
lor, said that every cut that could 
be made without sacrifice of pro- 
gram would be made. 

Dr. Doss sounded an encourag- 
ing note in the midst of the concern 
when he said that comparative data 
showed the University's investment 
performance, managed by two 
firms, to be above average among 
1,050 endowments of similar 
makeup. He also said that the letter 
of commentary on management, 
suggesting changed procedures, sub- 
mitted annually by the University's 
independent auditing firm, was the 
shortest this year that it has ever 
been and included only minor 

"There are clear indications of 
progress over the five years that 
coincide with Dr. Bennett's admin- 
istration and my chairmanship of 
the board of regents," Dr. Doss said. 
"Five years ago we didn't have 
program budgeting as such or plan- 
ning as a formal function. It has 
been a very difficult period due to 
fluctuations in the stock market 
and the money market, and of 
course inflation. We are concerned 
about the reduced effective pay of 
our faculty and staff, but we have 
to put it in context. The whole 
world has incurred a decrease in 
effective pay. Our first priority, 
nevertheless, remains increased 
compensation for faculty and staff. 
This is an outstanding university 
with an outstanding staff. This 
excellent faculty deserves increased 
financial support and that is the 
goal of the board of regents and the 
officers of administration." 



About 8,700 surveys were mailed 
out early in September to the entire 
active mailing list of alumni of the 
College. As of October 13, 1,113 
surveys had been received, or about 
12.8% of those mailed, and they 
continue to be received. 

Some of the results, as run 
through the computer by Dr. 
Charles Peyser of the psychology 
department and Mrs. Marcia Clark- 
son, director of data processing, 

One aspect of the response not 
susceptible to computing (how 
little about Sewanee is!) is the out- 
pouring of comment found on sur- 
vey after survey. As many as possi- 
ble of these have been read by 
slower human eyes and appropriate 
referrals and answers made. There 
are still many left to read, and 
patience is solicited. Officers who 
have been reading have found the 
outpourings of enormous interest 
and help. Several suggestions have 
already been incorporated into 
University planning. 

In perusing preliminary results, 
Dr. Peyser cautions that these 
responses cannot be taken as repre- 
sentative of all alumni. They may 
be and they may not be. The infor- 
mation is accurate for the 12.5% 
of the alumni who returned surveys, 
a group more heavily self-selected 
for graduates, donors and recent 
visitors to the campus than the 
alumni at large. 

The first item was, "My atti- 
tude toward Sewanee is generally" 
followed by four choices: "very 
favorable," "favorable," "unfavor- 
able," and "very unfavorable." 

The "very favorable" choice 
was made by 760 (69%) of the 
respondents. "Favorable" drew 304, 

or 28%. Twenty (2%) checked "un- 
favorable," eight (1%) "very unfa- 
vorable," and another eight (1%) 
did not respond to this item. 

Questions 2, 3, 4 and 5 elicited 
information about length of time 
each alumnus attended Sewanee, 
the decade of that attendance, 
whether or not graduated, and geo- 
graphical section of residence. 
These data become significant when 
cross-checked against attitudes, but 
do not perhaps mean much by 

Number 6 states, "I would 
(would not) be happy if my child 
wished to attend Sewanee." Nine 
hundred nine, or 83%, said they 
would be happy and 33 (3%) said 
they would not. Fourteen per cent, 
158, made no response, usually 
explaining with an absence of chil- 
dren of suitable age. A blank was 
provided for the names of children 
and these were referred to the ad- 
missions office. 

Eighty-four per cent of respond- 
ents (927) said in answer to ques- 
tion 7 that they had made a gift to 
Sewanee. Fifteen per cent (163) 
said that they had not. Ten, or 1%, 
did not answer the question. A 
total of $90,000 in gifts and 
pledges came in with this mailing, 
which included a Task Force appeal 
and a Homecoming announcement 
in the same envelope. 

Question 8 was concerned with 
the time of respondents' last visit 
to Sewanee. Twenty-one per cent 
(235) had been here within the past 
year, 344 or 31% from one to two 
years ago, and the others ranged 
down from 17% three to five years 
ago to 3% more than twenty-five 
years ago. Forty-six, or 4%, made 
no response.

Numbers 9 and 10 asked for 
"The aspect of Sewanee of which I 
now most approve is" and "The 
aspect of Sewanee of which I now 
most disapprove is." Obviously 
these answers are not tractable to 
the computer and are being human- 
ly explored. The random sample at 
hand, from a research biochemist, 
says for "most approved," "Strong 
liberal arts training with good 
science curriculum." Number 10 is 
left blank. The first survey to hand 
that answers "most disapprove" 
does so with "Image of its import- 
ance based on past achievements." 

Numbers 11-17, with the excep- 
tion of 12 ("I am, am not, an Epis- 
copalian"), are in the form of 
statements with request for approv- 
al or disapproval. "To a greater 
extent than many, perhaps most, 
liberal arts colleges, Sewanee has 
maintained requirements in math 
and a foreign language for both 
entrance and graduation." Indi- 
cating approval are 963 (88%), 
disapproval 82 (7%), with 55 (5%) 
not responding. Our biochemist 
comments, "I have found that a 
second language is helpful in writ- 
ing and expression." 

Ninety per caent (989) approve 
and 7% (74) disapprove of the 
statement: "Sewanee plans to hold 
the enrollment of the College to 
1,000, with an admission policy 
which favors those most prepared, 
as far as can be determined, to 
benefit from the Sewanee experi- 
ence. Within this policy, children of 
involved alumni are given prefer- 
ence; but realistically, some legacies 
will not be accepted." 

"Sewanee still tries to admit 
the best qualified applicants regard- 
less of financial ability. Today, 
about 45% of the students receive 
some form of financial aid (grants, 
loans, jobs). Last year $316,502 of 
the total financial aid budget was 
funded from endowment income 
restricted for this purpose, $172,871 
from other restricted sources, and 
$114,400 from unrestricted funds." 
Approving: 91% (1,005). Disapprov- 
ing: 3% (30). No response: 6% (65). 

"Private education has always 
depended on private support. Sewa- 
nee's student charges in the College 
cover about 54% of the educational 
budget, a higher portion than is 
true at most comparable colleges. 
Essentially the only other sources 
are endowment earnings (at Sewa- 
nee about 35%), and current gifts 
which are budgeted at about 11%. 
Alumni represent a legitimate 
source of support." Agreeing with 
this statement are 93% (1,027); 
disagreeing, 2% (18); not saying 5% 

"Sewanee conceives its mission 
to be the preparation of its students 
for life, not to make a living. Its 
alumni should be able to move 
into many different professions but 

are not prepared immediately for a 
specific profession." Eighty-three 
per cent (914) approve of this; 11% 
(121) disapprove; 6% (65) do not 
answer. So many of the "approve" 
responses are qualified, however, 
that this section is being reworked. 

"Sewanee adheres to the tradi- 
tion of academic gownsmen and the 
basic dress code." Eighty-nine per 
cent (984) approve; 7% (73) disap- 
prove; 4% (42) make no response. 

The last space, Number 19, asks 
for the respondent's occupation. 

In Dr. Peyser's initial cross- 
tabulation analysis it was found, 
interestingly enough, that 147 
alumni who had never made a gift 
had a "favorable" or "very favor- 
able" attitude toward Sewanee. 
Eleven who had made gifts checked 
"unfavorable" or "very unfavor- 
able." Perhaps the detailed reading 
now under way will reveal what 
turned these people off. 

Dr. Peyser and the computer 
found that the overall rating from 
question 1 did not vary appreciably 
with how recently the person 
attended Sewanee, the region of 
current residence, or whether or 
not the person is an Episcopalian. 
It did vary (predictably) by 10% or 
more with length of time attended 
and whether or not graduated. Less 
favorable response was made by 
those whose last visit was more 
than ten years ago.

Women varsity basketball players 
made the highest scholastic grade 
point averages of any listed group 
in the College in 1975-76, going 
through the hoop at 3.06. All 
women students participating in 
varsity athletics (21% of all women) 
did slightly better (2.98) than the 
average for all women (2.96). The 
women did better than the men 
(2.68), and the men participating 
in varsity athletics (26% of all the 
men) did better (2.7) than the male 
average. Brightest male varsity ath- 
letes were the tennis players at 2.88. 
Fraternity men's average 
(2.638) was slightly below the 
all-men's average of 2.68, but the 
Lambda Chi Alpha actives, highest 
on the fraternity list, averaged 2.9. 
Among the pledges the SAEs were

Art Department 
Harvests Recognition 

Dr. Edward Carlos had a one-man 
show of his drawings and water- 
colors (his twenty-fifth exhibition 
in 1976) at the Edinburgh Inter- 
national Festival in Scotland Au- 
gust 21 to September 14. The show 
was hung in the Episcopal Church 
of St. Michael and All Saints in 
Tolcross, a section of Edinburgh 
near the theater district. 

The show was in three parts, 
called "The Triumph of Michael," 
"The Passion," and "The Scottish 
Landscape." Dr. Carlos and his 
family spent his sabbatical last year 
in Edinburgh and in Iona where he 
sketched and painted the misty 
landscape. At that time he executed 
a commissioned tapestry for the 
Church of St. Michael and All 
Saints, which was also on display 
with the art show. The tapestry is 
10 by 25 feet and its multi-layered 
arrangement makes it about 10 
feet deep. 

Dr. Carlos attended the festival 
and was honored with several recep- 
tions while there. He said that his 
show was one of a hundred or so 
"fringe" activities including drama, 
dance, music and art held in 
churches, high schools, alleys, and 
any other public places that could 
he found. He has an invitation for 
next summer to go as artist-in- 
residence to the Isle of Iona Com- 
mune of the National Presbyterian 
Church of Scotland. 

Spring Honors 

Dr. Carlos had an oil painting 
on linen purchased by the Tennes- 
see Association of Museums to be 
included in the new facilities of the 
State Museum. In May, the work 
was part of a Tennessee Bicenten- 

drawing by Edward Carlos 

nial art exhibition at the Brooks 
Memorial Museum of Art in Mem- 
phis and was to tour the state for 
two years afterward until the new 
facilities are completed. 

His work was also in three other 
spring Bicentennial exhibitions and 
he had a one-man exhibition of oils 
and drawings at Tennessee Techno- 
logical University in Cookeville. A 
drawing entitled "The Holy Spirit 
as a Young Male" was exhibited at 
the Montgomery Museum of Fine 
Arts in March. Vestments of his 
design were used and displayed dur- 
ing the Lenten season at St. Luke's. 

In April Carlos and thirty pho- 
tography students, past and pres- 
ent, had a show of about fifty 
framed works at the Memphis 
Academy of Art. 

Seven Awards to Duncan 

Richard Duncan, instructor in 
fine arts, who joined the depart- 
ment in 1973, has had his work in 
sixty-three regional, national and 
international exhibitions, thirty- 
two since coming to Sewanee. He 
has also been represented in ap- 
proximately forty invitational ex- 
hibitions. He has received seven 

awards this year, including one of 
the five Best of Show Merit Awards 
at the Eighteenth National Prints 
and Drawing Exhibition in Okla- 
homa City. 

Latest and a most impressive 
honor is the selection of his print 
"A View from Monteagle" by the 
San Francisco Museum of Modern 
Art and a panel of international 
jurors for the World Print Compe- 
tition 77. This was one of 250 
prints by 165 artists chosen from 
4,085 entries. In addition to the 
initial exhibition at the San Fran- 
cisco Museum of Modern Art Janu- 
ary 14 through March 13, it is one 
of 100 prints by ninety-six artists 
from twenty-three nations selected 
for the Smithsonian Institution 
Traveling Exhibition, which will go 
to fifteen museums in the United 
States and Canada over a period of 
two years, from March, 1977, to 
July, 1979. 

Mr. Duncan is one of thirty 
artists chosen for an exhibition 
called Artists of the Southeast 
Invitational (the region to include 
Texas). Two major art centers are 
collaborating on the show: the High 
Museum of Art, Atlanta, and the 
Southeastern Center for Contem- 
porary Art, Winston-Salem. The 
exhibition will open at the High in 
November and travel to Chatta- 
nooga, Greenville (South Carolina) 
and Winston-Salem. 

In August he helped conduct a 
print workshop at the Hunter Art 
Museum in Chattanooga. Funded 
by the Tennessee Arts Commission 
and the National Endowment for 
the Arts, it included a one-man 
show of his work. Fifty students, 
artists and art instructors took part. 
Duncan was one of the first three 
artists selected to inaugurate this 
new artist workshop program free 
to the public. 

Frasier to Greece 

Thomas Frasier, the depart- 
ment's sculptor, went to Greece 
this summer on a Ford Foundation 
grant for a month's work in modern 
Greek and Byzantine art at the 
Athens Center for the Creative 
Arts. A proposed study trip to the 
island of Samothrace was canceled 
because of a flare-up of hostilities 
between the Greeks and the Turks 
over the question of oil drilling 
rights in the Aegean Sea. Since 
Samothrace is the first Greek island 
near the mouth of the Dardanelles, 
out of which the Turks were threat- 
ening to send a ship to explore for 
oil and the Greeks were threatening 
to blast the ship out of the sea if it 
tried, Frasier prudently went in- 
stead to the island of Thassos, 
where there is a handy escape route 
to the Bulgarian border. 

He exhibited in the Hunter 
Annual Craft and Sculpture Show 
in Chattanooga in the spring. 

And All Together 

All three members of the fine 
arts department will have a faculty 
exchange exhibit at Mississippi 
State College November 1-21. 

"A View from Monteagle" by Richard Dun 



80 feet high at the base of an over- 
hanging bluff and the remarkable 
complex of passageways; by 
archaeologists (the cave sheltered 
Indians of several ancient cultures); 
and naturalists, who find an abund- 
ance of noteworthy flora and fauna 
in the area. 

Most of all the two areas whose 
protection has now been under- 

taken are rewarding destinations 
for hikers and gentle adventurers of 
all sorts. It is hoped that the state 
will eventually build trails linking 
the Natural Bridge and Lost Cove 
Caves and continuing through 
Franklin-Marion State Forest area. 
In any case, easy accessibility to 
the motoring sightseer is not in the 

Natural Bridge, a favorite spot for 
students, residents and other 
connoisseurs, will be policed and 
preserved by the Tennessee Depart- 
ment of Conservation in an arrange- 
ment worked out over many years 
with the department by Charles 
Cheston, the University's forestry 
chairman. The new Natural Bridge 
state 'natural area was dedicated 
August 11 by the state's Conserva- 
tion Commissioner B. R. Allison. 

A plaque was unveiled com- 
memorating the gift of the two-acre 
site to the state of Tennessee by 
the University of the South. The 
dedication was attended by about 
125 members of the Tennessee 
Federation of Garden Clubs, meet- 
ing in Sewanee. 

A plaque was also unveiled 
which will be placed on the Lost 
Cove Caves, marking the gift of 140 
acres two miles south of Natural 
Bridge which includes the Lost 
Cove Caves and donated to the 
state by Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lee 
Carter of Dallas, Texas: 

Representatives of the Tennes- 
see Department of Conservation 
at the dedication were Mack 
Pritchard and Jim Robertson; 
Judge Roy Tipps represented 
Franklin County, and Herman 
Baggenstoss, C'33, of Grundy 
County was also present. Charles 
Cheston represented the University. 

"This is one of the finest steps 
that has been taken in quite some 
time regarding our natural re- 
sources," Cheston says. "The Uni- 
versity has taken care of Natural 
Bridge for a long time. We do the 
best we can, and we have done a 
good job. But for the state to take 
these areas over with their large 
work force and improvement plans, 
is better for all concerned." 

Natural Bridge, although not 
the largest of phenomena of this 

type, is a near-perfect example. 
It is a hard sandstone and earth 
"bridge" that crosses a large 
crevasse on the edge of the plateau 
cliff, about a mile off the Sherwood 
Road. The bridge was formed 
millions of years ago through the 
action of water on the surrounding 
rock. Soft sandstone, the geologists 
point out, eroded while the harder 
sandstone kept its original shape 
and formed the bridge. 

Lost Cove Cave has been the 
object of observation by cave 
specialists, who have noted the im- 
pressive entrance 100 feet wide and

Rev. Edward dc Bary 
Bishop Gray climbing Morgan's Steep 


Climbing Morgan's Steep on the 
rock face rather than by the steps 
has become routine for the Rt. 
Rev. Duncan M. Gray, Jr. (T'53, 
H'72), Bishop of Mississippi, and 
his wife, Ruthie. 

In the summer of 1975 Bishop 
Gray and his wife joined the Dio- 
cese of Mississippi's Pioneer Camp- 
ing Program and learned the art of 
mountain climbing. The program is 
for junior and senior high school 
young people. Each summer a 
number of camps are held in Sewa- 
nee. In 1976 Ruthie Gray was one 
of the camp leaders. 

"The bishop and his wife are 
our most mature climbers and 
cavers," said the Rev. Edward 
de Bary (C'61, T'68). "Our young- 
est was five— Lyn Luckett, the 
daughter of the Rev. David Luckett, 
rector of St. Paul's Church, 
Meridian, climbed Morgan's Steep 
in June." 

The Rev. Edward de Bary 
helped lead the Pioneer Camps and 
acted as a resource person after 
attending mountain climbing school 
in 1975. He developed the program 
as an outgrowth of his work with 
the Episcopal Young Churchmen 

of the Church of the Resurrection, 
Starkville, Mississippi. In the sum- 
mer of 1973 the first group came to 
Sewanee, camped in tents and ex- 
plored several caves, including Lost 
Cove Cave and the wet trip into 
Walker's Spring Cave.- The first 
venture was such a success that it 
became a part of the regular dio- 
cesan camping program in 1974. 

During the summer just past 
three Pioneer Camps spent a week 
in Sewanee. A fourth camp was 
organized for the senior high group 
under the leadership of the Rev. 
Cham Canon (T'59) and took a 
float trip on the Buffalo River in 
Tennessee. Camp leaders in Se- 
wanee were the Rev. David Luckett, 
the Rev. Terrel Griffiths (GST'75), 
the Rev. A. D. (Bo) Lewis (A'56, 
T'63), Mrs. Duncan Gray and Dr. 
Wallace Kay of Hattiesburg. Deena 
Mullen, a student at Southwestern, 
Memphis, was a counsellor and 
resource person. 

According to the Rev. Edward 
de Bary, who has attended all the 
Sewanee camps to date, the camps 
are designed to introduce young 
people to the beauty of Sewanee 
and to provide an atmosphere for 

learning how to cope with life in 
the mountains. The campers have 
an opportunity to test their climb- 
ing ability as well as to learn the 
arts of knot-tying and rappelling 
(a controlled method of going 
down a rope). 

The campers learn a great 
deal about themselves as they 
face the natural fears of high 
places and the claustrophobia 
which caves can produce for those 
who fear tight places. In order to 
minimize risks, all campers are 
taught proper safety techniques. 
In four years of camping there 
have been no accidents which 
required medical attention. "Our 
drive to Sewanee from Mississippi 
is the most dangerous part of our 
trip," said Mr. de Bary. 

All the camp leaders agree that 
aside from discovering the Univer- 
sity of the South and the Sewanee 
environs, the Pioneer Camps pro- 
vide a unique situation for young 
churchmen to learn the import- 
ance of trust, self-confidence and 
community. Working closely with 
one another to insure the success 
of the group knits a close com- 
munity which discovers anew the 
meaning of communion. 



The success of Periscope '76, the 
first Sewanee Alumni Summer Col- 
lege, has led to approval of another 
session next summer. The exact 
dates have not been set, but will be 
in late June or early July while the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center is 
tuned up, since this proved to be a 
highly popular dividend. 

Speaking for the administration, 
Provost T. N. Marsh said, "From 
the moment the participants arrived 
on campus last summer, there was 
no question in my mind that this 
new institution would be an endur- 
ing one. The enthusiasm and spirit 
that characterized both the alumni 
and the faculty were infectious and 
impressive. It is well worth doing 
regularly, not only from the point 
of view of maintaining close re- 
lationships with alumni, but also 
because all universities are recog- 
nizing that their educational re- 
sponsibilities are not fulfilled with 
the granting of degrees." 

Of the alumni summer college 
participants who responded to a 
questionnaire circulated by Dr. 
Edwin Stirling, program director, 
thirteen rated the intellectual con- 
tent "excellent" (the highest desig- 
nation listed), three rated it "very 
good," none marked the "good," 
"adequate," "poor" or "very poor" 
boxes. Fifteen people thought it 
was "sufficiently challenging" and 
no one thought it was not. Asked if 
the staff was accessible enough for 
informal talks, two said "no" and 
fourteen said "yes." One added, 
"This was a most significant and 
important part of the program." 
Three said they would prefer 
a central program theme, while 
twelve opted for lectures and dis- 
cussions on different topics, the 
format of the first go-round. 
Many suggestions were made 
for improvement of physical ac- 
commodations, though even here 
euphoria seemed to spill over. 
Nine said the housing (dormitory 
rooms) was "good," four "excel- 
lent," and three "adequate." Six 
considered the food "adequate," 
five "good," and five "very good." 
One even thought the Gailor fare 
was "excellent." Nothing below 
"adequate" was checked in either 

Almost every respondent took 
the occasion to add comments and 
suggestions, with overwhelming en- 
couragement to continue the pro- 
ject. Asked "What were the major 
strengths of the program?" one 
said, "Dr. Carlos, Dr. Sutcliffe, Dr. 
Goodstein and Dr. Stirling— their 
contributions intellectually and 
socially. Of equal importance, the 
stimulation of the 'mixed bag' of 
students. To rub against the disci- 
plines, interests, talents of fellow 
participants was an exciting and 
enriching experience." Dr. Francis 
G. Middleton, C'62, and the Rev. 
William McKeachie, C'66, took the 

trouble to write and share with the 
director detailed journals and 
critiques. Herewith some excerpts- 
first, McKeachie: 

The reception was an undoubted 
success and just the right way to 
begin a Sewanee event ... I can't 
comment on Gailor meals other 
than lunch. The food seemed better 
than in former times, and the 
appearance has certainly improved 
(of course there was nowhere to go 
but up); with respect to the latter 
it still falls short of Oxford, but 
gastronomically I should say under- 
graduates eat better at Sewanee 
than at St. John's! The self-serve 
system was somewhat less than 

. . . No one could have done a 
better job of kicking off the aca- 
demic side of the program than 
Anita Goodstein. She was as good 
as A.J.P. Taylor on British tele- 
vision ! 

Many alumni seemed surprised 
by developments in the art depart- 
ment—surprised and impressed. 
Waring McCrady's "Back Yard" 
tour was sheer delight. Everybody 
seemed to enjoy the various musical 
events; it was a pleasant bonus to 
have the Choir Directors' concerts 
as well as those of the Music Center. 

On the whole the program was 
a stunning success. Let's hope word 
gets around. In particular, who's 
looking after coverage in the 
Sewanee News? (We thought he 
was— ed.) 

Spartan but More Real 

From Dr. Middleton's observa- 

Our first evening meal at Gailor 
Hall was adequate, but something 
of a disappointment in that the old 
family style feeding had been re- 
placed by the cacophony of a cafe- 
teria. The food was adequate, and 
we were subsequently to learn that 
breakfasts came out well, that 
lunch and dinner sufficed. But, we 
didn't choose Sewanee for its food; 
and finding the usual Sewanee hos- 
pitality, we had dinner invitations 
which added immensely to the 
pleasure of our visit as well as 
adding quality to our sustenance. 
Malon Courts dormitory was no 
Holiday Inn but rather a refreshing 
change of pace: spartan but more 

Monday morning Dr. Anita 
Goodstein presented an overview of 
the origins of the American Revolu- 
tion as interpreted and argued by 
historians through the years. Dr. 
Goodstein invoked such tools as 
psychohistory, sociological history, 
and quantitative history, and nicely 
demonstrated how each has added 
some insight or some new hypo- 
thesis to the study of this American 
phenomenon. We were fascinated 
by the depth of her discussion, her 

Dr. Frank Middleton 

rapid and precise presentation and 
her great'erudition. She was to con- 
tinue being a major person of 
interest for many of us during the 
week, as she led discussion groups, 
joined us for lunch and continued 
to provoke interested questions in 
history and education. 

In the evening the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center had a con- 
cert which was an outstanding treat 
for us. The sight of the Chapel and 
the sound of baroque organ and 
trumpet music was a moving experi- 

Tuesday morning we changed 
paces. Dr. Gerald Smith, assistant 
professor of religion, presented a 
talk on "Southern Religion: The 
Changing of the Gods." He had a 
compelling concept of "moderniza- 
tion" and he discussed this concept 
as it applied to the South since 
Reconstruction. He looked at his- 
torical failures of the Southern 
church as leading to a secularization 
of our leadership and our subse- 
quent religious turmoil. He drew 
fascinating analogies to the situa- 
tion with Japanese religious history 
beginning with the collapse of the 
feudal system, the Maiji restoration, 
the development of national Shinto, 
the disestablishment of Shinto in 
allied-occupied Japan in 1945 lead- 
ing to religious turmoil in that 

After a coffee break the class 
was divided into two "mini- 
seminars" led by Drs. Goodstein 
and Smith, both of whom consider- 
ed the implications of their lectures. 

I joined Dr. Goodstein's group 
and we got off into a long discussion 
which began with Dr. Goodstein's 
query as to the reasons for the 
decline of history as a discipline in 
the pre-college educational years. 
This led to a general discussion of 
the state of elementary education. 

Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Smith 
led us on a long walk to Bridal Veil 

In the evening we had our first 
astronomy class with Dr. Francis 
Hart. We looked at Mars through 
the telescope as it was disappearing 
in the early evening. We then start- 
ed at the North Star and identified 
major constellations with naked eye, 
field glasses and telescope. This was 
followed by more organ music in 
the chapel. 

Looked Back and Laughed 

Wednesday morning Mr. Gorley 
Putt, Brown tutor and visiting pro- 
fessor of English from Cambridge 
University, discussed "Henry James: 
Radical Gentleman." I believe Mr. 
Putt managed to convince us all 
that we should try Henry James 
again. His own love for James came 
through strong, and certainly high- 
lighting this discussion was his read- 
ing passages from James, bringing 
out the subtle but strong humor 
and insight that might be lost in 
rapid reading. 

Later in the morning Dr. Claud 
Sutcliffe, associate professor of 
political science, led a discussion 

D£c£mb£A; 1976' 

The week will give us new directions 
until we can get a new infusion of ideas 
at Sewanee next year. 

Mrs. Fred Lucas 
F. M.Bass, Jr., C'65 and Mrs. Bass in Malon Courts Hall 

group on "The Current Presidential 
Election and Institution of the 
Presidency." This was more a lec- 
ture than a discussion group, at 
least initially. Dr. Sutcliffe reviewed 
James David Barber's book on the 
presidential character, and gave us a 
handout by Barber from Psychol- 
ogy Today on Richard Nixon's 
character. Sutcliffe reviewed Bar- 
ber's major premises categorizing 
past presidents as active-passive, 
and positive-negative. I have not 
read the book, but the concept 
came across as naive and simplistic, 
and was duly taken to task by the 
class in the subsequent discussion 
session. While I reviewed this 
session as being somewhat thin, I 
recall that it was billed only as a 
discussion group and not a major 

That afternoon we had another 
trip with Dr. Gerald Smith, this 
time to Dry Cave. Once again, this 
was an invigorating outing, which, 
however, reconfirmed my distaste 
for caves— wet or dry. 

Friday morning Dr. Ted Stirling 
discussed a group of modern poets 
known for their exceptionally con- 
fessional and personal styles. Major 
representatives were Robert Lowell, 
Sylvia Plath, John Berryman and 
Anne Sexton. This was an articulate 
discussion which gave some his- 
torical background necessary to 
the understanding of their poetry, 
demonstrated the development of 
this mode and influence of Lowell's 
Life Studies. A superb talk which 
did all those things a summer col- 
lege talk should do: brought to my 
mind significant work by people I 
had not given sufficient attention 
to, and with some elucidation 
made their writings more accessible 
to me. 

This was followed later in the 
morning by discussion groups by 
Dr. Stirling and Dr. Smith. I attend- 
ed Dr. Smith's discussion. Because 
of interest in the presidential elec- 
tion and because of Jimmy Carter's 
rise and religious overtones, Dr. 
Smith chose to discuss the concept 
of a civil religion in America. He 
did this at the level of its beliefs, 
symbols, rituals and motifs. 

. . . Increasingly as this very 
rich and varied week progressed, we 
were unable to do everything. The 
pace, however, was not rushed. We 
enjoyed the luxury of a choice. 

Saturday morning Dr. Sutcliffe 
entertained my wife and classmates 
(I had had to leave for Lexington, 
Kentucky) with in-depth discussion 
of the Middle Eastern situation, its 
politics, its conflicts, etc. She felt 
this useful to an understanding of 
an intensely complex area. 

In summary, we were highly 
entertained and instructed. We 
thought about new ideas, experi- 
enced new thoughts. Was it Troilus 
who looked back at the world and 
laughed? Well, we felt so far re- 
moved from our usual world that 
we could look back at it and at 
least chuckle. The week brought 
some new perspectives and will 
give us some new directions in our 
reading until we can get a new infu- 
sion of ideas at Sewanee next year. 

But the week wasn't all intel- 
lectual. Our children, ages four and 
a half and seven, were cared for 
on a daily basis from 9:00 A.M. 
until 11:00 P.M. They had their 
own summer college with activities, 
swimming, picnics, drawing, stories, 
etc., and are almost more eager to 
return than we are. We are not sure 
who felt the most relief at the 
freedom that we, and they, had 
during the week. We did a little 
reading in our spare time, but 
found that we had so many things 
we wanted to do while there, it 
was nothing short of an immense 
success for us. And, if Sewanee 
cooperates, it is likely to become 
a continuing part of our lives." 

Dr. Stirling says that over half 
the '76 Periscopers have already 
reserved for 1977, and as enroll- 
ment will be held to sixty, the 
highest number believed to allow 
free interchange in the present 
format, all interested persons (not 
necessarily alumni) are urged to 
write soon to Dr. Edwin Stirling, 
Department of English, The Univer- 
sity of the South, Sewanee, Tennes- 
see 37375. 

They had their own summer college. 




Parents Happy 

Parents' Weekends at Academy and 
College came off very well again, 
with enthusiasm for these relaxed, 
unstructured visits hitting at least 
eight on a scale of ten. The Acad- 
emy drew 187, the College about 
750 (impossible to tell— some who 
pre-registered were fogbound on 
Friday, others succumbed unan- 
nounced to the bright Saturday, 
and they stayed as far away as 

Student guides showed them 
around, they hiked and golfed and 
attended classes and watched games 
with their young. College parents 
shared the weekly entertainment 
at the Outside Inn favored by their 

One parental pair wrote a 
pleased bread-and-butter kind of 
letter to a University officer, en- 
closing by way of a tray or napkin 
ring set, a gift of $2,000 to the 
Million Dollar Program. 

Hats off once more to the 
student managers. 

Memorial to Stratton Buck 

A collection of books by and 
about Gustave Flaubert, given to 
the duPont Library by friends of 
the late Stratton Buck, was dedi- 
cated October 16 in the library. 
Dr. Buck, a member of the College 
French department for twenty-nine 
years and its chairman for nineteen, 
had centered much of his scholar- 
ship around the French author, 
culminating in a book of biography 
and criticism. A bookplate to go 
into each volume and mounted on 
the dedication program was design- 
ed by Waring McCrady. 

Pilgrims Retrace Medieval Route 
Dr. Thomas Spaccarelli, assistant 
professor of Spanish, his wife, 
Rose, and five Sewanee students 
started out (three of the students 
finished) to hike through the South 
of France and northern Spain to 
Santiago de Compostela in north- 
western Spain during the summer 
recess. They walked about a third 
of the 850 miles from Aries. Buses 
and trains were resorted to only to 
yield to the tyranny of time. Santi- 
ago, where the remains of St. 
James, patron saint of Spain, are 
presumed to be buried, was one of 
three principal destinations for 
Roman Catholic pilgrims during the 
Middle Ages, and their Sewanee 
successors followed one of the 
traditional routes, stopping along 
the way to collect slides, medieval 
culture, art and literary history at 
the many monasteries and other 
points rich in lore that dot the trail. 
Not only is Santiago a holy place, 
says Dr. Spaccarelli, but this was a 
holy year— one in which St. James' 

Mrs. Buck at Flaubert dedicatii 

day, July 25, occurs on a Sunday. 
Not only is James the patron saint 
of Spain but also of its Christian 
reconquest from the Moors. 

Deer Mouse Hemoglobin 
Honors Foreman 

Dr. Charles Foreman, now chair- 
man of the College biology depart- 
ment, has been elected to the Board 
of Scientific Advisors for the High- 
lands Biological Station operated 
now by the University of North 
Carolina. An uncommon hemo- 
globin in the deer mouse (Peromys- 
cus maniculatus) was named after 
him recently in accordance with 
international nomenclature rules. 
The deviant hemoglobin was found 
in a mouse trapped near Flagstaff 
by Ed Kirven, C'68, then his re- 
search assistant and now a member 
of the chemistry department. 

Brothers Agree 

Among the familial intertwinings 
which make the student directory 
consistently fascinating reading is 
noted the presence in the College 
of three children of three brothers. 
Approval is underlined by the 
membership of one set of the 
parents in the Vice-Chancellor's 
and Trustees' Society. 

Sewanee Strong in Worship 
The May 1976 issue of Worship, 
organ of the North American Acad- 
emy of Liturgy, contains articles 
by Milton Crum, Jr. and Marion J. 
Hatchett, both T'51. Associate 
editors of the publication include 
Aidan Kavanagh O.S.B., C'51, of 
Yale University Divinity School and 
Thomas J. Talley, C'48, General 
Theological Seminary. Dr. Hatchett 
is on the St. Luke's faculty and Dr. 
Crum at Virginia Seminary. 

Sewanee Chautauqua 
A series of education and enter- 
tainment combined with the oppor- 
tunity to eat lunch at the Bishop's 
Common snack bar was initiated 
this. fall by John Miller, technical 
director of the University Theatre. 
A mixed and happy bag indeed 
has emerged so far, from poetry 
reading by Dr. Scott Bates to "How 
to Keep Plants Happy in Your 
Dorm Room" by junior student 
Jonathan Ertelt. The Sewanee Folk 
Ensemble, including Em Chitty, 

Reg Rucker and Bob Dilworth had 
at one tuneful noon. Hit of the lot 
(some of you may need to hold 
your breath) was Provost Thad 
Marsh singing and tickling the 
ivories for a chronology of Broad- 
way show tunes. The star-quality 
performer was persuaded to do an 
expanded version for an evening- 
long performance in Guerry Hall 
for the benefit of the Association 
for the Preservation of Tennessee 
Antiquities (he is definitely not one 
of them). 

Christian Fellowship Formed 
at Academy 

Each Tuesday evening a new Christ- 
ian Fellowship group meets at the

Physical Push-Ups Too 

The Academy began its P.E. pro-

circuit training course based on the 
Naval Aviation Training Program. 
Both boys and girls went through 
the intensive exercises to get in 
shape for varsity and intramural 
sports to follow. In-place routines 
gave way to a finale of running

The entire Sewanee Academy, 
teachers and students and admin-

tennis, golf, fishing, hiking, caving, 
a picnic lunch and a cookout (not 
all for everybody, presumably).

Dr. Ruth Packs Her Bag 

After twenty-seven years as a 
Sewanee pediatrician, Dr. Ruth 
Cameron has given up her practice 
to join the Southeastern Appa- 
lachian Regional Primary Health 
Care Program, a new federal effort 
to bring physicians into counties 
where there have been too few or 
none. The project will offer free 
and low-cost medical clinics to 
residents of five Tennessee counties. 
Dr. Cameron will continue to live 
in Sewanee, where almost everyone 
has been her baby or a parent of 
one or more. She will miss her 
children and the brand-new toy- 
stocked office she had just moved

Civility may welt be the hallmark of this institution. 

Here as elsewhere different kinds of students 
began to seek admission and we and others 
began to seek a more diverse student body. The 
director of admissions began to travel to find 
potential students. A financial aid program was 
evolved that was more rationally based, more 
professionally administered, and strongly en- 
dowed. By the 70s all admitted students could 
expect to have their basic needs met. 

College and seminary were desegregated 
amidst tearing discussions, dire predictions, and 
results that were meager. Out of it came a better 
understanding of the nature of the institution 
and a Ford Foundation challenge grant. 

At the end of the 60s, the years of Sturm 
und Drang, women were admitted as students. 

The men soon learned that 
future shock can be fun. 

Again, there were prophecies of disaster. The 
first coeds were told they could not be cheer- 
leaders or sing in the choir or accept leadership 
roles. Why? Because we had never had women as 
cheerleaders, or as choristers or as leaders. They 
could type for the Purple, fill female roles with 
the Purple Masque, attend some fraternity 
parties, and sit quietly in class. The men soon 
learned that future shock can be fun. 

In 1950 the numerical grading system gave 
way to the letter grading system. Grades rose as 
better prepared students came, as instruction 
improved (naturally), and as we felt the push of 
the Populist philosophy. The pass/fail option 
was introduced, graduation requirements were 
broadened, perhaps eased, and new courses were 
added which catered to the interests of students 
rather than to the traditional demands of the 
trivium and quadrivium. In a word there is more 
choice and more flexibility. 

Today, students and faculty sit on the board 
of trustees. Students sit on major faculty com- 
mittees and exercise greater control in matters 
of student life than they did twenty-five years 
ago. The gulf between students and teachers has 
narrowed. It is hard to maintain an adversary 
relationship when students and teachers move 
from class to committee room. In the former 
there is tension, but in the latter their roles are 
equal and both may be working for the same 

Inevitably, there were charges that we had 
forsaken our traditions, that we had joined the 
permissive generation and that we had confused 
leading with following. The cocoon had cracked, 
but the result was not just openness but dis- 
course. Inquiry entered and dogmatism departed. 

In these fabled years seminarians came no 
longer as bright young apprentices recently re- 
leased from college. They came from all walks of 
life and occupations. They came with wives and 
families and the governing ratio became not the 
student-teacher ratio, but the children-student 
ratio. By 1975 undergraduates had become 
adults by law. They no longer played the role of 
the child-learner. They not only sat on boards 
and committees, they devoted more time to 
extramural activities. They created the youth 
center. Student teaching assistants were drawn 

into local schools. Students helped politicians 
organize and campaign. The old hierarcy of 
administration, faculty, and student learners 
began to crumble. Students reached out into 
the world and the world rushed in upon us. The 
model of the monastery was broken in both 
the seminary and the college. 

Teachers changed. They became more pro- 
fessional in the sense of having more and higher 
degrees. They began to serve as expert consult- 
ants. They published on academic and non- 
academic topics, and they became more active 
in the conventions of learned organizations. 
Fortunately, we avoided the worst abuses in 
which the campus became a base from where 
the professional operated. They remained teach 
ers, but they came down from the towers to sit 
on the ground and reason. 

As we moved through the 50s the role of 
the Vice-Chancellor changed. He remained the 
V.C., but there had been subtle changes. 

Breslin's clock was turned over to Dr. \\ , n 

with excellent results. The weather at Com- 
mencement is left to the Commencement 
Committee with predictable results. The V.C. 
ceased to be the patriarch of this Mountain 
tribe and became the organizer, defender, and 
arbiter among the contending interests on the 
campus. He was never at a loss for solutions 
because someone was always in his office with 
the necessary solution to be adopted by Tues- 
day. No longer the first among equals, he 
became a moving target. He shared leadership 
with trustees, regents, faculty, students, and 
wives. (My mother, who spent most of her 
years on another campus, always insisted that 
the wives could run a campus— any campus- 
better than the men.) He has become every 
man's friend who interprets each group to the 
other. Withal he remains the leader of the 
ceaseless safari searching for the never-failing 

College and seminary were 
desegregated amidst tearing 
discussions, dire predictions, and 
results that were meager. 

Ray Morrow has noted that in the quarter- 
century after 1950 the normative order of 
universities broke down. That order, the product 
of centuries, combined a complex arrangement 
of methods and values. It was a traditional 
agreement about the purpose of the institution, 
the nature of scholarship, and the life of the 
mind. In the universities the opinion of others 
was respected and disagreements were resolved 
rationally. University life was characterized by 
a humane, liberal and aristocratic civility. 

Then came the crises of the 50s and 60s in 
which campuses became political battlegrounds. 
Rational discussion gave way to confrontation- 
even riot. Some students and teachers believed it 
was more important to take a position than to 
study, or to learn the reason of things, or to 
avoid the wickedness of folly. How one felt was 
more important than what one knew. 

At Sewanee we had our moments and it was 
sometimes hard to know where the old high 
jinks of the bright college years stopped and the 
new non-negotiable demands began. Civility 
never left, even though it may have looked 
toward the Domain gates. Students, faculty 
administrators, always found ways to reach each 
other. In this community discourse continued 
The ties of affection and respect and tolerance 
endured. 11 was not a dark hour, just a very 
cloudy day. 

A student body rooted in a section when 
tradition and continuity endure, and an institu- 
tion rooted in the Anglican tradition of affec 
t.ionate accommodation, preserved civility. Thai 
civility may well bo the hallmark of this insti- 

When we honor our founders, the "men whe 
made Sewanee," we ought to add two more: 
Alexander Guerry who led Sewanee out of the 
ilougb of the Depres ion and the valley of the 
Second World War to the plateau of hope: 
Edward (Ned) McCrady, who presided over the 
changes we are recalling with elegance, charm, 
and civility and set us on the path to the celes- 
tial city. I doubt that he came in 1951 to lead 
the revolution that followed. But he led it, 
survived it, and ennobled it. Sewanee remained 
the good and joyful place of its motto. 

Some things never change. Professors will 
continue to complain that students cannot 
write. In 1950 every test in freshman history 
described the revolting pheasants. More recently, 
the Purple has reported that "in 1947 a railroad 
terminal ran through the town of Cowan." 
Neither the faculty nor the Purple should be 
dismayed. I once delivered a stern lecture in 
this place denouncing the use of four-letter 
words on campus. The next issue of the Purple 
noted that Webb is a four-letter word and so 
is dean. 

Like Justice Holmes we may not have a 
ticket telling us exactly where we are going. 
The past teaches us that Sewanee is a place 
where one may distinguish between the wicked- 
ness of folly and the truth of humor. A broader 
student body, a more professional faculty, and 
an institution characterized by civility, tolerance, 
and reasoned faith will become the institution 
the Founders intended. They envisioned the 
University of the South as the great Southern 
university that would interpret, shape, and lead 
the region and the nation. They knew, as we 
know, that "a scarecrow in a garden of cucum- 
bers keepeth nothing." Incivility, intolerance, 
and inflexibility are cucumbers. EQB.

Dr. Fort and the operating 


A visit to the new Emerald- 
Hodgson Hospital, in service since 
last May, confirms pre-opening im- 
pressions of great attractiveness and 
comfort, almost unbelievable to 
anyone with experience of busy, 
crowded, hurried metropolitan 
medical centers. 

Here all is space, quiet, beauty, 
and constant concerned happy care 
and attention. Four physicians with 
offices in an adjacent building and 
a staff of sixty-five in three shifts 
serve thirty-four beds, two beds to 
a room, each room with color tele- 
vision, telephone, patient-controlled 
heat and air conditioning. Each 
room has wide windows on a cen- 
tral wooded courtyard or outside 

The handsome Sewanee Inn 
across the street offers distinctive 
meals and overnight accommoda- 
tions for the patients' visitors. 
(The mountain sandstone archi- 
tecture of the hospital blends with 
that of the Inn.) A pharmacy 
moved in at Thanksgiving furthers 
the centralization of patients' re- 
quirements and amenities. 

Emerald-Hodgson Hospital has 
complete service and modern equip- 
ment for what it offers: general 
surgery and medical care, obstetrics 
and newborn attendance, X-ray and 
other laboratory work, twenty-four- 
hour emergency coverage. "Our 

physicians are well qualified to 
handle emergency situations and 
are quick to transfer to a large 
hospital complex if it is in the 
patient's best interest," administra- 
tor Col. Joseph Powell says. 

No brain or chest surgery, 
except for minor procedures, is 
attempted. Emerald-Hodgson does 
have the only unit for premature 
infants in a twenty-five-mile area. 
A respiratory testing and treatment 
unit staffed by certified therapists 
is on a trial contract basis. Although 
there is no longer a coronary or 
intensive care unit as such, "We do 
provide coronary care," says Dr. 
Fletcher Stuart, hospital chief of 
staff. "We simply put someone in 
the patient's room full time. If we 
have two heart cases we put them 
in the same room. Our load is not 
consistent enough to maintain the 
necessary personnel for a separate 
unit. We have provided very good 
care comparable to that of the 
specialized centers and it is a lot 
more pleasant for the people." 

The family has more access to 
the patient, for one thing, and Dr. 
Stuart is a great believer in that. 
"We all differ in philosophy but I 
encourage family involvement. I be- 
lieve it is better for the patient. We 
like parents to stay with pediatric 
patients, and we like a family mem- 
ber to be with any acutely ill 

William Saussy, R.N., Clifford McBee, Nell Butner, aide 

person. Of course there are excep- 
tions and we are alert to keep 
family away if that is best for the 
individual patient." 

"I like natural childbirth," Dr. 
Stuart also says. "Even with other 
techniques I believe the husband 
should be in on it. He was a part of 
the beginning; let him stay with it." 

Dr. Stuart has been chief of 
staff of Emerald-Hodgson Hospital 
since 1974. A 1955 alumnus of the 
college of the University of the 
South, he did graduate work at 
Washington University in St. Louis 
and received his M.D. degree from 
the Medical College of Alabama, 
where he served as a fellow in endo- 
crinology. He did a two-year stint 
(1962-64) as an Army Medical 
Corps captain at Letterman Gen- 
eral Hospital in San Francisco, 
then returned to his native Ala- 
bama to practice general medicine 
in Brewton. He came to Sewanee 
in 1970. 

Asked to define the office of 
chief of staff he said with a smile, 
"Overwork and underpay— since no 
pay." He elaborated, "Most of it 
involves new changes in government 
and Joint Commission requirements. 
All of us are involved in committees 
on this." 

If a patient's ills fall within the 
range of the hospital's offerings 
there are obvious advantages in 
staying here. "In an emergency a 
five- or ten-minute trip to the 
hospital is certainly preferable to 
one of an hour and a half or more. 
If it can be done here it is much 
nicer than going fifty or a hundred 
miles away. We all know what a 
terrible commuting problem that 
can make for the family," Col. 
Powell says. "And then the patient 
is so very comfortable here— we 
hear that from everyone. Our 
nursing care is superior, as it has 
always been. Our dietary service is 
superior, too, I think." 

Col. Powell brings up a factor 
that is confirmed again and again. 
"Our strongest point," he says, "is 
the love given the patient by the 
entire staff. Every patient is treated 
as an individual, never as a number." 

He says, though, that however 
excellent and pleasant a hospital 
is, it is the physician whom a pa- 
tient chooses, not the hospital. The 
current staff of four physicians is 
down from what it has been at 
some earlier times and hence the 
occupancy rate, which determines 
whether a hospital can break even 
financially or not, is also down. 
One physician who was expected 

this year did not come, and one, a 
pediatrician, Dr. Ruth Cameron, 
has accepted employment with a 
si ate health service. 

Dr. Stuart does not see this as 
a continuing problem. "Superior 
physicians are attracted here be- 
cause of the university and the 
nature of our community. Without 
making invidious comparisons, I 
think there is no doubt that the 
quality of care here by physicians 
and staff is very high, far and away 
beyond what would be expected 
in a small rural hospital." 

Two of the present staff physi- 
cians are alumni of the college, Dr. 
Dudley Fort as well as Dr. Stuart. 
A third, Dr. Russell Leonard, a one- 
time Houston specialist in thoracic 
surgery and now the university 
health officer and in general prac- 
tice; was attracted to Sewanee 
when two sons and a daughter were 
students. The fourth, Dr. Arthur 
Berry man, has become deeply in- 
volved in university life as coach 
of the cross-country team. 

Dr. Stuart says a search for a 
new pediatrician to succeed Dr. 
Cameron is under way, and that 
two people were already being 
considered within a week or two 
after she discontinued her ties with 

the hospital to join the Southeast 
Appalachia Primary Care Program. 
"We all take care of the children," 
Dr. Stuart said, "but it helps to 
have someone with special interest 
and concentration in the area." 
There is a current effort to 
interest other specialists who might 
wish to slow down a little in mid- 
career to form a practice group 
here. Dr. Leonard and John Bratton, 
alumni director, are working to- 
gether on this. 

First Loss in Six Years 

The hospital showed its first 
serious operating loss, $84,000 in 
the final audit, during the fiscal 
year just passed, the last two 
months of which were spent in 
the new building. Col. Powell's 
records going back to 1955 show 
expenditures and income both 
climbing sharply, and small defi- 
cits and surpluses scattered through- 
out the years. Peak occupancy was 
in 1959 with 10,000 in-patient days, 
compared to 4,647 in 1975-76. 

Col. Powell mentioned several 
reasons for the reduced occupancy: 
1. Higher living costs, pushing out 
some medical care not covered by 
insurance. 2. High unemployment 
in this area with loss of insurance 
coverage. 3. Increased medical 
specialization and easier access to 
metropolitan areas where specialists 
congregate. 4. More admissions and 
length-of-stay restraints imposed by 
the federal government. 5. More 
advanced medical techniques which 
reduce hospital stays. 6. The build- 
ing of a number of other hospitals 
in the area. 

While labor and utility costs 
have of course shot up astronomic- 
ally, insurance and government 
assistance have also risen. The cru- 
cial factor is the extent to which 
the hospital is used. In 1974-75 
there was an average of 15.26 pa- 
tients a day; in 1975-76 this had 
dropped to 12.7, a reduction of 
2.56 patients per day. To illustrate 
the impact of this small-seeming 
figure Col. Powell got out his pencil 
(his daughter had borrowed his 
pocket calculator) and figured that 
one less patient per day means 
$38,949 less income in a year, with 
expenditures essentially the same. 
A minimum staff must be main- 
tained. The drop of 2.56 patients 
came out to $99,709. 

Occupancy has been picking up 
a little since June, and the 1976-77 
budget is based on sixteen patients 
a day. While the new hospital is 
showing greater use than the old, 
and this should increase even more, 
it is still well below the break-even 
point of approximately eighty per 
cent, the current standard of most

hospitals. Debt service on the new 
hospital also comes out of its 
operating budget. Col. Powell is cer- 
tainly on the lookout for all pos- 
sible economies. He has left on only 
enough overhead lights in the corri- 
dors, for example, to ensure safety, 
and says his light bill should be 
halved. To this observer, at any 
rate, the subdued light contributes 
to the remarkably restful atmos- 

The years 1970-74 showed an 
unbroken surplus. It was in 1974 
that the decision was made to build 
a new hospital, when the 119-year- 
old building could no longer meet 
either state structural regulations 
for hospitals or contemporary 
standards of convenience. The stout 
cut-stone building has been con- 
verted to a dormitory and given the 
name of Hodgson Hall, recalling its 
original name of Hodgson Library. 

In an interview with the Sewa- 
nee Purple, university provost Thad 
Marsh gave three reasons behind the 
decision to build. First, the Episco- 
pal Church has historically been 
committed to providing medical 
services in addition to spiritual and 
educational opportunities. Second, 
other area hospitals are located in 
the valley, and the dangerous con- 
dition of the mountain roads in 
winter necessitates a good hospital 
on the plateau. 

Another concern voiced at the 
time the issue was debated was the 
need of a hospital to keep first-rate 
physicians on the mountain and the 
need of first-rate physicians to re- 
assure parents who send their sons 
and daughters here that excellent 
medical care is readily available. 

A third consideration that Mr. 
Marsh reviewed for the Purple was 
an overwhelming commitment by 
the community the hospital serves. 
The regents said that if residents of 
the patient area contributed 
$250,000 toward a new hospital it 
could be built. Gifts and pledges 
poured in from Franklin and 
Grundy and Marion Counties and 
far beyond for more than double 
that amount— over $500,000. The 
rest of the hospital's cost of $1 ,775 ,- 
000 was financed by a bond issue, 
backed by the hospital's restricted 

Another figure indicative of the 
love behind the hospital, as well as 
in it, is $100,000 raised over the 
years by the women of the com- 
munity, first with the Surprise 
Shop and in recent years through 
the Hospitality Shop, a thriving 
enterprise that sells delectable 
lunches, gifts and rummage. Men 
and women volunteers also staff 
an information desk in the hospital 
lobby from 1:00 to 8:00 P.M. and 
Hospital Auxiliary ladies come 
every morning to serve refresh- 
ments to the patients and help 
them where they can. 

A chaplains' corps of four 
School of Theology students offers 
weekly services in the hospital 
chapel, maintains regular evening 
hours in the building to be avail- 
able to anyone who wants to see 
them in addition to visiting patients 
during the day, and are on twenty- 
four-hour call. Senior seminarian 
Ronald Greiser * coordinates the 
service with the Rev. Archie Staple- 
ton, rector of Otey Parish. The 
duty is credited in the seminary as 
fulfilling fieldwork assignment. 

"All that's part of medicine," 
says Pamela Hodge, director of 

nursing. "All the doctors and the 
pills and the sugar and the nursing 
care are not going to do any good 
unless God puts a hand on some- 

They Provide the TLC 

Busily making entries on charts 
behind the angled counter of the 
nurses' station, or relaxing in the 
small room attached, are the young 
people who attract the most super- 
latives — those of them who are not 
out working on the floor at the 
time. A television monitor shows 
the emergency entrance so that all 
are at the ready at all times. 

Director of nursing Pamela 
Hodge is a slender, energetic young 
woman who gives off waves of en- 
thusiasm and efficiency. She 
trained at Nashville General Hos- 
pital, receiving the R.N. degree in 
1965. She nursed at Vanderbilt and 
Parkview Hospitals in Nashville and 
at others in Alabama and Georgia. 
Before coming to Sewanee, while 
living in Chattanooga, when her 
husband went on Air National 
Guard duty she filled in from time 

Sam Bowling in laboratory. He 


to time at Franklin County Hos- 
pital, where her father-in-law was 
administrator, giving her children 
a chance to visit their grandparents. 

One of the most valued of the 
nursing staff is a man, William 
Saussy, R.N., a 1974 graduate of 
the University of the South. He 
started working at the hospital as 
an orderly while an undergraduate 
and with medicine in his blood (a 
grandfather and uncle are physi- 
cians) became very interested, par- 
ticularly in his operating room 
work, and took nurse's training at 
Motlow College as a prerequisite to 
training as a nurse anesthetist. He 
has become so wrapped up in what 
he is doing on the floor and in the 
operating and emergency rooms 
that he keeps postponing the deci- 
sion to go on with his original 
intention. He and his wife, Betty 
("H.B."), have three boys. 

How do the nurses like the 
new hospital? Elizabeth Young 
makes an incredulous "Hoooo" 
sound, then tries to find words. 
"There's really no comparison with 
the old hospital — this one's so much 
nicer, quieter, easier to work. You 
have all the things you need." 

Mrs. Young, who is the daugh- 
ter of the Arthur Terrills of Sewa- 
nee, trained at Erlanger in Chatta- 
nooga. Her husband, Thomas R. 
Young, is out of the service and a 

senior in the College, majoring in 
English and hoping to teach in 
the Sewanee area. 

Elfriede Dotson in a soft 
German accent stresses that the 
care the patients are given is very 
good. She was born in Berlin, has 
been in the United States sixteen 
years, three at Emerald-Hodgson. 
She has worked in several hospitals 
and is a highly regarded operating 
room nurse. 

Pam Hodge says, "It's really 
nice for the patients and the 
nurses. Visitors say, 'This is like 
a motel— I never saw a hospital 
like this!' Everything's so much 
easier, we have that much more 
time to work with the patients." 

"I like it," says Bill Saussy. 
"All the staff seems to get along 
very well. There's teamwork on 
all levels— from the administration 
through nursing and other depart- 
ments. The patient's the prime 
concern. Everyone sees to it that 
the patient is taken care of. Even 
after they leave the hospital there's 
follow-up work through a social 

Bill hesitates when asked how 
he likes emergency room work. 
"It's good when we can help some- 
one. There've been a lot of lives 
saved here. It's hard to think of a 
particular case, there've been so 
many. There was a man traveling

through who got chest pains. He 
wanted to keep driving, but his wife 
persuaded him to get attention. He 
was brought in and placed on 
cardiac care orders. Later that night 
he developed ventricular fibrillation 
and his vital signs were such there is 
no doubt he would have died if he 
had gone on. We got a doctor there 
immediately. We defibrillated him 
and administered other treatment 
and he came out of it and went on 
his way a week and a half later." 
Bill Saussy says the number of 
people who stop here while travel- 
ing through is surprising. "A lot 
of them, unfortunately, are from 
car accidents. If a case is beyond 
our capabilities our doctors and 
nurses can at least stabilize the 
patient so an ambulance can take 
him to a larger hospital— if he has 
possible brain injuries and might 
need neurosurgery, for instance. 
It's only a half-hour drive by ambu- 
lance to Chattanooga. If the person 
is critical we will send a nurse 
along in the ambulance. If some- 
thing goes wrong they can stop at 
the South Pittsburg hospital, about 
halfway. The spacing of hospitals 
now is good." 

On the Receiving End 

The patient in room 7 is Ross 
Rogers, a youngish middle-aged 
man looking fit as a fiddle in 
striped green pajamas and waiting 
to be discharged that day. He works 
at the cement plant in Cowan. He 

is Dr. Fort's patient ("He's a great 
little doctor") five days after a 
hernia operation. "This is great 
here. They sure got a nice hospital. 
I like the view. That's why I picked 
the bed close to the window." 

Clifford McBee in room 8 had 
surgery also by Dr. Fort, the same 
day, but he'll be in a while longer, 
as his feet were operated on and he 
is not walking yet. He is a burly 
thirty-three-year-old cable repair- 
man, employed by South Central 
Bell in Winchester. He, too, shows 
no hospital pallor. "There isn't 
anything I don't like about it. I 
wanted to come here because 
they've always taken good care of 
my wife. As far as taking care of 
you I don't believe there's any 
hospital can beat it. I think when 
you wake up in the mornings and 
have a pretty view and everything 
it's bound to make you feel better." 

The next patient we saw 
through the glass of the nursery in 
her incubator didn't tell us her 
name. But she was a perfect minia- 
ture human, opening and closing 
her hand against her blanket with 
obvious satisfaction. One of the 
doctors standing by said, "I don't 
suppose anyone will tell you her 
insurance ran out and the hospital 
is paying $150 a day for her all 
the weeks she's here." 

That small patient has already 
made her mark, in the University's 
red ink.

by Anne Cook 

Sewanee Academy's faculty is enriched this 
year by six new faces and one returnee from a 
two-year teaching stint in Australia. They are 
challenged by a student body of 180 who come 
from nineteen states and three foreign countries. 

H. Payne Breazeale, A'62, comes to the 
math department from the Marine Corps, where 
he served for thirteen years. He was a helicopter 
pilot for eight of those years. He organized the 
Academy's fall exercise program from his exper- 
ience as an instructor in the training command 
at Pensacola. Mr. Breazeale is assistant football 
coach and head basketball coach. He holds a 
B.S. from Louisiana State University and lists 
sailing and team sports as hobbies. 

With a total of seven years' experience at 
high school-level teaching, Royal C. Johnson 
joins the math department from the University 
of Virginia, where he was a graduate instructor 
in mathematics education. Prior to that he 
taught in Rockbridge High School and St. 
James' prep school, an Episcopal boys' school 
near Hagerstown, Maryland. His degrees include 
a B.S. with honors in mathematics and physics, 
Shippenburg College, Pennsylvania; and an M.A. 
in mathematics from Morgan State University, 
Baltimore. Mr. Johnson will also serve as assis- 
tant soccer coach. 

Gorgas Hall has two new dormitory super- 
visors who also teach at the Academy. Mrs. 
Donna Wallace, B.A. from Shorter College 
(Rome, Georgia), is certified in P.E. and is direc- 
tor of the girls' physical education program at 
the Academy. She is currently coaching the 
girls' varsity volleyball team, a first-year varsity 
sport for girls in Tennessee. Donna comes to 
the Academy from Cleveland (Tennessee) 
Country Club, where she was the tennis teaching 
pro for the past two and a half years. 

Assistant supervisor of the girls' dorm Miss 
Edith Long, B.A. in history from Valdosta 
State College, Georgia, is enthusiastic about 
teaching ancient cultures. 

"Imagine," she told her sister recently, "my 
largest class has only twelve students!" 

Edie grew up moving along with her Air 
Force family, so she knows what it's like to feel 
new and alone. She, too, plays a good game of 

Teaching five sections of Spanish 1, 2, 3 and 
4 is Lynn Kelly, wife of a junior seminarian at 
St. Luke's. She holds a B.A. in Spanish from the 
University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and taught 
for three years in Gastonia, North Carolina, 
before coming to the Academy. Her hobbies 
include playing the guitar and singing, combined 
with the most time-consuming job of all— raising 
two sons, aged ten and seven. 

Michel Rousseau, a native of Belfort, France, 
says Sewanee Academy reminds him of his 
boyhood days when he was sent off to boarding 
school and camp in the summer. He thinks 
boarding is good as it teaches a young person to 
live in a community and to respect other 
people's feelings. Mr. Rousseau holds a B.S. in 
French from the University of Tennessee, Chat- 
tanooga, has done graduate work at UTK and 
taught at the Cleveland Day School in Tennessee 
for two years before coming to the Academy. 

Back up from "down under" is physics 
instructor John Wendling. Mr. Wendling has 
taught a total of thirteen years, first coming to 
the Academy in 1970 from Michigan. He taught 
physics for four years at Sewanee Academy 
before taking his wife and three children on an 
Australian adventure for two years. While in 
Australia Mr. Wendling taught mathematics 
in New South Wales. 




I can't afford it— I'm saving for 
college, say parents. But, for some 
students this way of thinking is a 
costly mistake. If the foundation 
for college is not firmly laid, the 
less mature student is perhaps being 
programmed to fail. Too late par- 
ents find that money should have 
been spent on prep school. 

The Sewanee Academy offers a 
fresh start, a new set of experiences. 
The learning/living aspects are in- 
valuable. You can't hide in a class 
of ten students. Being prepared be- 
comes a habit. You learn from your 
roommate to respect another per- 
son's feelings. Pressures from the 
group are in the direction of getting 
things done— and our students do.

Paddlers Preeminent 

As it has done every year since the 
competition began, the Sewanee 
canoe team took an overwhelming 
first place in the Southeastern 
Intercollegiate races on the Cataw- 
ba River October 2. Among ten 
teams represented, Sewanee with 
301 points was followed by William 
and Mary in second place with 68 
points. Professor of philosophy 
Hugh Caldwell is the coach and 
Dean Stephen Puckette a continu- 
ing star. The two were in third and 
second place in the men's wildwater 
division, with the dean trailing a 
nationally ranked canoeist, David 
Benner, by only ten seconds. Se- 
wanee won first, second and third 
in the C-2 mixed division, with 
Carolyn Powers and Ellis Misner, 
Debbie Robinson and Angus 
Graham, and Sue Wiygul and 
Jimmy Williams the victorious 
pairs. Ellis Misner and Philip Wil- 
liams took a first in the C-2 men's 
division slalom, and others brought 
in seconds and thirds in abundance 
for the massive wash-up.

Belmont College introduced the sport to the South more than 
30 years ago, presented the trophy to co-captains Helen Mary

one and lost one. Kevin Green, 
assistant professor of economics, 
is the coach. 

Also for the first time the 
volleyball tossers played host to 
two varsity teams, beating Tre- 
vecca and losing to Bryan. The 
games were in the main gym. 
Martha Swasey, director of women's 
athletics, says this works well 
because the ceiling is high enough 
that the ball doesn't bounce off it. 
Removable sockets are placed on 
the floor to hold the net. Volley-

Another undefeated Sewanee 
team in its fall season is women's

the women won their first three 
matches, with the final one, with 
Southwestern, coming up October 

New women's tennis coach is 
Pam Lampley, who will also handle

reporter describes him watching

shouting compliments to everyone 
who performs well. He is said to 
have successfully shushed a booing

against the home team, and to have 
leaped up from his coach's post

an injured opponent. Also, says a

The Sewanee Academy Tigers are in 
the midst of a rebuilding year. Two 
starters returned from the 1975 
squad, which posted a 6-3 season. 
Inexperience and injuries to key 
personnel have kept the Academy 
players from achieving the success 
they have worked hard for. Seniors 
on the team are Jimbo Hill, Tom 
Flood, Dawson Moore, Jeff Davis, 
John Barbre, George Morgan, Brian 
Thomas, Melvin Lane, Andy 
VVooster and Britt Brantley. 

The future looks bright for the 
Tigers. Leading the underclass field 
are juniors Archie Baker, Mark 
Gillespy, Keith Clay, Chris Cook, 
Harry Thomas, Wayne Walston, 
Rob Butler and Ken Daniels. Fresh- 
men and sophomores have contrib- 
uted more this year than ever 
before. This group is led by Bennett 
Dillaha, Garrett Brown, Grayson 
Chew, John Mulhall, Merritt Finch, 
Keith Albright, Mike Morris and 
William Glass. The team is coached 
by Dale Morton, C'74, with assistant 
coach H. Payne Breazeale, A'62, 
and student assistants W. R. Lovett, 
A'77, and Bill Harrison, A'77. 
Edgar Hill, Cayce Stock and Bayne 
Miller are the hard-working mana- 
gers. Although the present season 
remains winless in mid-October, 
'he team is working well together, 
a nd spirits are high as the Tigers 
build for the future. 

Dale Morton, C'74, is the 
Academy's director of athletics ' 
and football coach for the Tigers. 
People keep wanting to do kind 
things for Morton's boys. Last 
s Pring the football team of 1975-76 
Was honored at an all-day outing 
on board the boat of Dr. and Mrs. 
Arthur C. Collins of Scottsboro, 

Alabama. The photograph on this 
page was taken there. After the St. 
Andrew's game a banquet appeared 
in the Tiger locker room which in- 
cluded ham, potato salad, and both 
chess and chocolate fudge pie from 
the kitchen of Dale's mother. 
Life on the Academy squad is 
not all a piece of cake, however. 
Those afternoon practices five 
days a week take their toll in 
aching muscles and assorted bruis- 
es, but there are advantages. 

Cross Country 

The cross country team had an un- 
even season start. Led by seniors Bud 
Benning, Hank DeLong and George 
Elliott, the group worked toward 
the regional meet. The underclass- 
men on the team are led by Allison 
Stratton, Kendall Fritsch, Aymar 
Moore and Carl Wenzel. Cross 
country coach is John Wendling. 


Girls' volleyball became a varsity 
sport in Tennessee for the first time 
this season. The Academy partici- 
pated in this new T.S.S.A.A. sport 
in District 5, which includes the 
Chattanooga city schools. They 
went to the district tournament 
October 15 and 16 at Kirkman 
High School in Chattanooga, but 
returned winless. 

Team members are seniors 
Wendy Benton, Betty Van Hooser, 
Anne Cross, Sharon Bonner, Mar- 
garet Pritchett and Robin Murphy. 
Juniors are Kathy Patton, Jamie 
Coughlin, and Dot Defore is the 
lone freshman. Stephanie Harvell is 
manager and Mary Pom Claiborne 
rounds out the traveling squad, 
with Mrs. Donna Wallace as coach.

The building of the new hospital set up a round of musical chairs. The 
old Emerald-Hodgson Hospital became Hodgson Hall, a dormitory. 
Further dormitory space was secured in the hospital administration 
building and former doctors' offices. These moves freed up badly needed 
space again for the visiting public at the Sewanee Inn.

It's Topic of Homecoming 


SEWANEE-George Barker, center, of Sewanee, chats with Coleman 
Harwell, left, of Nashville, and Hollis Fitch, of Eagle Pass, Texas, at the 
50th reunion of the class of 1926, held here last weekend. Barker was 
captain of the 1925 team and quarterback on the 1924 team, which was 
the last one to beat Vanderbilt. 

SEWANEE-It happened 52 
years ago, but here on the moun- 
tain last weekend, it was just like 

The happening was a football 
game played in 1924 in which 
Sewanee beat Vanderbilt, 16 to 0. 
It never happened again, either. 

THE OCCASION was the 50th 
reunion of the Class of 1926, and 
21 members of that group came 
back to celebrate a Homecoming 
weekend that was just perfect, 
right up to this year's victory over 
Southwestern of Memphis. 

Coleman Harwell, former editor 
of The Tennessean and a member 
of the class of '26, was chairman of 
its reunion. 

And among the old players 
were two who helped lick the Com- 
modores on that memorable day, 
quarterback George Barker, who 
was to be captain of the 1925 team, 
and Jonathan L. (Buck) Haynes, of 

While memories of their student 
days were predominant in the activ- 
ities, the class of '26 came with 
grateful hearts and an open pocket- 
book, too. 

of $18,500 to the school's cam- 
paign for $1 million in annual 

giving this year, saying it was "in 
appreciation of what the university 
has meant to us in the past 50 

All kinds of mementoes of the 
past were on display, including a 
photo of the team that beat Van- 
derbilt, and of the entire class. 
Barker and Haynes were able to 
pick themselves out of the group 

W. Porter Ware, antiquarian, 
from Sewanee, assembled a variety 
of other photographs and me- 
mentoes, including a sweater used 
by the father of Dan Hamilton, 
who was a member of the class, 
and of the football team. 

Displayed were pictures of 
old professors, medals, trophies, 
dance programs, and even spoons 
and dishes from which they ate at 
old Tuckaway dining hall. 

Ellis Arnall, former governor 
of Georgia, was one of those from 
a neighboring class that gathered 
for homecoming, who joined with 
the 1926 grads to celebrate. 

The importance of gifts to the 
school is emphasized by the fact 
that they make up 10 per cent of 
the annual budget. Hollis Fitch, of 
Eagle Pass, Texas, is gifts chairman.

St. Luke's Convocation 

"Perceptive of the real issues . . . 
provocative . . . humorous . . ." 
were descriptions by alumni of the 
DuBose Lecture given by the Rev.' 
Dr. Carlyle Marney, noted pastoral 
theologian at St. Luke's Convoca- 
tion October 19. Dr. Marney lec- 
tured on Tuesday afternoon to the 
annual ingathering of St. Luke's 
alumni assembled in Grosvenor 
lounge with the resident family of 
students, faculty and staff. A panel 
moderated by Dean Holmes with 
two alumni, the Rev. Archie Staple- T'59, and the Rev. Ken Kinnett, 
C"56, T'69, responded to Dr. 
Marney the next afternoon. All 
agreed that the gifted, articulate 
Dr. Marney had an amazing capacity 
for personal affirmation. 

At the annual meeting conduct- 
ed by the Rev. Joel Pugh, C'54, 
T'57, president of St. Luke's alum- 
ni, a resolution was passed calling 
for even more interaction among 
students, faculty and alumni at St. 
Luke's Convocation, intending also 
to lead to an increased awareness 
of current developments in the 
life of the seminary. 

Academy Alumni Gather 

Sewanee Inn was opened to guests 
again and Academy alumni virtually 
took over the quarters October 8-9. 
A somewhat smaller-than-usual but 
enthusiastic group on arrival en- 
joyed hospitality in the "Old Pub" 
hosted by Mimi and George Wood, 
A'40. Next morning was the annual 
meeting, followed by the football 
game with the Saints, and after- 
wards all warmed up with cocktails 
and a country ham dinner in the 
new Bishop's Common. 

Meeting twice, first in regular 
session and later in a spontaneous 
continuation, the alumni board of 
governors reviewed with careful 
scrutiny problems of alumni rela- 
tions and communications. Feeling 
the need for further probing, those 
who could remained Sunday and 
met to propose a plan of the gover- 
nors' own devising to launch support 
appeals themselves but within the 
framework of the MDP, emphasiz- 
ing unrestricted giving for credit to 
Sewanee Academy. 

Headmaster Hutson announced 
that the Academy had received a 
matching grant offer for the current 
fiscal year. Louie Phillips, A'26, 
of Nashville will match dollar for 
dollar up to $250 the gift of any 

Academy alumnus who is a member 
of the classes 1921 through 1931 
and not a donor of record in the 
past year. The matching grant has 
an overall $2,500 limit. This is the 
first Academy matching offer, and 
Mr. Phillips hopes that others will 
offer challenges to their classes. 
Requests were made for names 
of prospective alumni governors to 
be elected at the annual meeting 
next fall. These can be forwarded 
to the alumni director. Eight board 
vacancies will be filled. 

Gardner Named 
Academy Alumni President 
Joe Gardner, A'67, just named 
vice-president for classes under a 
new constitutional change made 
final October 8, instead found 
himself president of Sewanee 
Academy alumni at the annual 
meeting that morning. R. Marshall 
Walter, A'58, resigned due to the 
pressure of business commitments. 
Gardner, who has organized 
one of the most active of Academy 
classes, 1967, is a long-standing 
member of the alumni board. He is 
with Coastal Gas of Houston. 

Central Mississippi 
At a recent executive session of the 
Sewanee Club of Central Mississippi 
the Rev. Douglas Stirling, C'67, 
was elected president. Other offi- 
cers are Scott Welch, C'61, and 
John Allin, C'75. 

Tennessee Valley 

Meeting at the home of the Merritt 
Wikles in Huntsville, the Sewanee 
Club of the Tennessee Valley 
gathered for the first regular meet- 
ing on October 1. Dr. Robert Cas- 
sidy, a recent addition to the 
College faculty in religion, was the 
featured attraction. 

Word had spread of Dr. Cassidy's 
exciting presentation, which he first 
made in New York City. The New 
York club president, Lee Glenn, 
had said to all listeners that Dr. 
Cassidy was a "must." Just what 
the professor did had best be left to 
those who would like to try him at 
their meeting. This will prove 
familiar enough to anyone who ever 
attended Sewanee, but to reveal 
his technique in the Sewanee News 
would tend to spoil his "act." 

Elected president for the Ten- 
nessee Valley was Lee Prout, C'61; 
vice-president, James Macintosh, 
C'53; and secretary, Cruse Clark-

More alumni attended College 
Homecoming October 15-16 than 
had ever before gathered at one 
time on the Mountain. 

The fiftieth reunion class came 
twenty strong, prompted by chair- 
man Coleman Harwell's hard spade- 
work. They gave a check for 
$18,500 to the University's Million 
Dollar Program, noting that other 
members of the class were expected 
to add to the amount before the 
end of the year. Hollis Fitch was 
gifts chairman. 

In a letter of presentation to 
Dr. Bennett the class leaders said: 
"This represents the 1926 Class 
Appreciation Gift for what Sewa- 
nee has meant to us in the fifty 
years since our class Commence- 
ment. It is our hope that future 
classes will accept this as a chal- 
lenge and make ever-increasing gifts 
to Sewanee to help maintain its 
high standards." (See Tennessean

Other highlights of the weekend 
were the Sewanee-Southwestern 
at Memphis football game, which 
Sewanee won, and the annual 
soccer game between the varsity 
and the alumni which the varsity, 
coached now by P. R. Walter, A'63,

stays of the trophy-winning club. 

It was announced at the annual

year will be October 21-22, and 
that at that time the football field 
will be renamed as a memorial to

Wit, charm and wisdom pack 
every page of James Young Perry's 
new writing— a book called Le's 
Whittle Awhile (Sky Valley Press, 
Columbia, S. C, 1976, $7.50). 
Sewanee watchers past thirty will 
remember the half-dozen articles 
Perry wrote some time back for the 
late lamented Saturday Evening 
Post, while numerous civic and 
church groups will recall his spon- 
taneity as an after-dinner speaker 
throughout the Carolinas. 

Jim's student days at Sewanee 
were interrupted by World War I 
but at his graduation in three years 
in 1920 he had been captain of 
football, head proctor, president of 
his class all three years and probab- 
ly the most honored of his student 
generation. His first observations of 
the people who were to become 
subjects of his interest and affec- 
tion were made in the coves around 

Le's Whittle is a fascinating 
chronicle of the thirty-year excur- 
sion of James Young Perry and 
his wife into the Blue Ridge moun- 
tains of western North Carolina 
where, settling on 2,000 acres of 
McBee (pronounced Magby) family 
land, the two of them went about 
getting acquainted with their neigh- 
bors. How nearly impossible this 
was and how long it took is told in 
a series of anecdotes which reveal, 
better than any other type of 
narrative could, what sparks were 
struck when Annie Guerry Perry, 
an Eleanor Roosevelt type, did 
good back in the hills. 

The remarkable character of 
those sturdy, independent, stoical, 
wily and generous mountain people 
is illustrated with poignancy and 
precision by a master story-teller. 
There's not a dud in the lot. The 
subtleties of local etiquette are 
beguilingly portrayed when Perry 
explains how a perfectly depend- 
able mountain man can be four 
hours late to an important appoint- 
ment and not feel an explanation is 
necessary any more than his waiting 
friend expects one. The reason: the 
person nearest at hand gets prior 
attention. If a neighbor "comes on" 
you as you are leaving and "just 
sets," you not only don't ask him 
to leave, you don't even tell the 
visitor that you have an engagement. 
Attitudes toward time, 

loquacity, privacy, money, religion, 
funerals, weddings, courtesy, and 
keeping vital information to your- 
self when you're not "axed" for it 
are totally different from those of 
twentieth-century city dwellers and 
Perry, in explicating his wild and 
wonderful stories, lays bare the 
underlying motivations. It would be

rank injustice to both author and 
subjects to label the book a psycho- 
logical study. It is far more than 
that. It is the account of a sympa- 
thetic and gregarious philosopher 
who, when he couldn't understand, 
persistently asked "Why?" He was 
won to their ways and so will be 
any gentle reader.

How do terrestrial animals get 
on islands, why are some of these 
animals different from those on 
adjacent islands and from those on 
the nearest mainland? and how did 
they get to be different? These and 
other questions provoked the great 
naturalists Charles Darwin and 
Alfred Russel Wallace to form their 
ideas of evolution through natural 
selection and changes in environ- 
ment. Likewise, James D. "Skip" 
Lazell's newest book, This Broken 
Archipelago, resulted from two 
decades of observations and collec- 
tions of animals inhabiting islands. 
Skip entered the University of 
the South as a freshman in Septem- 
ber 1957, but even then he was an 
experienced naturalist, having 
studied reptiles, amphibia, and 
raccoons in Pennsylvania, other 
eastern states, and on many of the 
Caribbean Islands. He majored in 
English because of his interest in 
writing, but took all the biology 
courses and comprehensive exams 
in both departments. While at 
Sewanee, he collected all the sala- 
manders, frogs, lizards, and snakes

in this region and wrote a pap er 
about them. After graduation i 
the spring of 1961, he secured „ 
master's degree in zoology from the 
University of Illinois, did further 
graduate work at Harvard, and 
earned his Ph.D. in zoology from 
the University of Rhode Island. 
He is now wildlife biologist for 
the Massachusetts Audubon Society 
and has published over thirty scien- 
tific papers. 

This Broken Archipelago ... 
eludes a description of Cape Cod 
and its adjacent islands and the 
amphibia and reptiles inhabiting 
them. These areas were under 
glacial ice and without terrestrial 
vertebrates only a few thousand 
years ago. After the ice melted, 
animals from adjacent land invaded 
the archipelago, and, if they sur- 
vived, were changed by mutations 
and natural selection, and were 
maintained in the changed forms 
by isolation. 

Skip is quick to point out errors 
that have long been accepted as 
truths, for example: amphibian 
means two lives (larva and meta- 
morphosed adult), and not living 
on both land and in water. Toads 
are a particular kind of frog and not 
a separate category. Not confining 
his remarks to field trips on Cape 
Cod and the islands, he takes us 
with him and his friends to Sewa- 
nee, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and 
the Outer Banks of North Carolina. 
Even persons with little interest in 
amphibians and reptiles will find 
Skip's philosophical writings very 
interesting. Throughout this book 
are pleas for conserving our remain- 
ing wild areas, protecting endan- 
gered animals, and refraining from 
the thoughtless dumping of live 
animals into areas where they do 
not now occur.

by William Hathaway 

The propped hoof of majesty, 
antlers blazing in sunset 
I overlook valleys of plenty. 
In this brief calendar moment 
my children believe they can fly 
They press towards that delirious edge. 

But we woke this morning to a man 
throwing root-bark and sparks 
from a sit-down mower. The dead 
screamed in the eaves and trees twisted 
between the clouded pane and empty sky 
I knew that unrighteous suffering 

must be the local sin in such a saintly place. 
How could my bulging liver, slimy heart, 
make do where black gowns flapped 
in the last besieged and moral turrets? 
Ancient charters and sports equipment balance 
in stained glass hands, and no one laughs. 

The stains seem grosser on my clothes. 
Perhaps my sons are right; one could descend 
over blooming dogwood in a heavenly glide. 
Could I ever float farther away from hell, 
and why not at least from the city on the hill? 
Shabby and pale I am the first to turn and go. 

Sewanee, Tennessee 
Easter, 1974 

From A Wilderness of Monkeys (Ithaca House, 1975) 

William Hathaway was in Sewanee giving a poetry 
reading and visiting his friends Dale and Leslie 
Richardson (he a member of the English depart- 
ment). "Dale told me that the last poet through 
town was William Stafford, who wrote a poem 
about Morgan's Steep. Since the whole place 
seemed loaded with tradition, which interests me, 
I decided to try to keep up a tradition in a small 
way by writing my own Morgan's Steep poem." 
The poem was spotted by Stewart Lillard of the 
duPont Library, and the author kindly gave us 
permission to reproduce it. 


Keep What We Have 

Alma Mater, Sewanee 

My glorious mother ever be. 

How great to return to the Mountain 
May 24 for the first time in some years, 
and see the old again and the new for 
the first time. 

At the same time, my Glorious 
Mother is not so glorious. While we 
build the new, I see much evidence that 
we do not maintain the old. 

All Saints' Chapel shows extensive 
evidence of water leakage. Falling 
plaster abounds and water stains run 
right down to the antiphonal organ 
chests, a situation not especially good 
for the organ or the building. 

Walsh Hall has rotting window 
sashes and doors; much exterior 
paint has long since disappeared, leaving 
the building looking a lot like it did 
in the 50s before the renovation. 

The shelter at Lake Cheston hasn't 
been repainted since it was built; 
many of the supporting timbers are a 
mass of rotting and decaying wood. 

Convocation Hall stands dusty, 
sparsely furnished, and apparently little 
used. Some of the plaques under the

pictures of the notables are tarnished

Due to vandalism, the Memorial 
Cross at University View is no longer 
lighted at night. But couldn't someone 
try Lexan to protect the lenses, bulbs 
and reflectors from being stoned and 
shot out? 

And, folks, in neither the Bacca- 
laureate Service nor Commencement this 
year was the Sewanee Hymn sung. 
What a pity. 

We sing "Sewanee will be Sewanee 
when Vandy's busted up." But only 
if we maintain what we have. Whether 
the problem is lack of planning or lack 
of funds I cannot tell, but we must set 
some priorities for keeping up what we 
have before we build even more struc- 
tures to start further deterioration.

Commends Faculty-Staff Giving 

Hats off to the faculty and staff 
of the University of the South. To have 
the highest percentage of giving from 
any group come from the faculty and 
staff should serve as a major incentive to 
the rest of us to put our support behind 
these dedicated people. I appreciate 
this fine showing from the faculty and 
staff of their commitment to Sewanee, 
and I hope that my own class can achieve 
as high a percentage of giving in the 
near future.

Chair through a Mask Darkly 

Is the chairperson you so well 
advisedly omit from your magazine a 
huperson or a woperson? 

"Human" is the Latin adjective 
form of "homo," cognate with Anglo- 
Saxon 'guma,' man, surviving in 
"bridegroon," a folk etymology (what 
people do to words to make seeming 
sense when the original meanings have 
been lost or misunderstood). "Woman" 
is from "wyf'man," female of the species 
man. "Person" means "through the 
mask," and since actors wore masks, 
came to be applied to characters 
in a play ("dramatis personae"). 

But the point of absurdity has long 
since been passed in the effort to 
change the facts of language into state- 
ments of opinion. 

In common hupersonity,

Sewanee has tried, as any institution which 
is to endure must, to make the world relevant 
to its own principles and ideals rather than to 
accept the values of the world. 

— Peter Taylor 

For a hundred years Sewanee students have taken the imprint of the Mountain 
with them into the world— its beauty, its inner peace, its unending search for truth, 
its caring, its civility. 

Thousands have in turn told Sewanee that they care— 
expressing their sentiment with their work, 
their involvement, and their financial support.
